Damn it - I’ve just getting this too now and the planet 9 link no longer seems to be active. 
 

Anyone else fixed this?  Back to google for now I guess... 🤔🤷‍♂️

@Maxheadroom - thanks for the Intel. I’ll wind em out a little, see if that resolves it. And perhaps order some new ones of it does. 👍🏻

No probs @Windymiller, keeping fingers crossed as it’s such a simple fix

Thanks for the tip, I get this rattle sometimes so I have just unwouned mine quarter turn. They feel secure but a little loose now so will see if it helps.

I’ve just wound mine out a half turn, the boot lid for felt ‘tighter’ when I closed it. Will go for a drive and report back on whether that’s solved the ‘rattle-clunk’...

Look forward to your updates....might try this fix myself (my mechanical skills are VERY limited re anything more involved...)

Well back from a drive and the noise is still there. 🤔

 

it does sound like something ‘jiggling’ about somewhere ‘in the boot’, and as the boot is empty I think it likely is the counterbalance weight in the boot lid clonking around a bit. 
 

think I’ll need to Strip the boot lid trim off (once I’ve found a ‘how to’).

Damm, that's a shame :(. Did you try and wind buffers out a tad more until their nearly fully out ? there is a "how to" out there somewhere think it was on plant 9 too which I used to remove trunk trim, think all I needed was a good selection of trim removal tools ( plenty on ebay ).

I've had to wind mine out a fair way to keep the tailgate quiet. Does make closing it quite a hard push though.

 

Beyond that the clunking may be suspension, possibly rear top mounts?

Thanks both, I’ll wind out some more and go for a drive on Saturday. 
 

I had thought it might be a suspension noise, but it really does sound like something ‘jiggling’ rather than knocking / clonking, and seems only / more noticeable at lower speeds over constant bumpy surface - like a resonant frequency is reached causing the counter weight to oscillate 🤔

 

ive got a Nielsen trim tool set - best £9 spent on amazon ever, especially when it came to recent centre console removal and recent Kia Sportage door trim removal for an intermittent window switch problem 😉👍🏻

The tailgates do jiggle around a bit, thats why the paint rubs off on the seal by the roof.

I'll try mine later. Also worth checking that the rear lights are securely in place, sounds crazy on a Porsche I know but my rear left felt a little loose. Also check the trim panel that covers the rear of the light, there should be little white cup that the ' clip'  fixes into. Mine seemed loose so I added a bit of packing to it.

hi guys, I had "trunk clunk" when I first got my Croc 4 years ago, when I stripped the lid trim off sometime later to fit the rear spoiler I found the mass damper wobbling on its rubber mounts and would clonk the lid when moved hard. I loosened if off and put foam tape underneath, the black closed cell tape with adhesive on one side that's about 6mm thick and probably 20-25mm wide (RS Components). then tightened it all back up again.  Sorted, never has another clonk since. 

hope this might help.

Thanks Steve - would you have a link to a ‘how to’ guide for the trunk trim removal please?

So I wound the trunk-lid bump-stop thingees all the way out and that didn’t stop the noise. I don’t think it is the tail-lid itself moving / rattling - it certainly sounds like something inside it ‘clunking’ about over smaller, lower frequency bumps. 
 

I found this item for a bit of insight into how to remove the trim. I’m away with work currently so will have a go once back home later this week.

I think I will also get some new trunk-lid bump-stop thingees ordered anyway - surely they can’t cost much 🤔🤷‍♂️

I did this on my Cayman S, my solution being very similar to what Steve described above.  It's easy enough to do, just a bit time consuming removing all the trim.  Having some of those plastic trim removal tools does make the job easier.
