Creak/rattle in rear cargo area

Every time I drive over a bump that flexes the body slightly at low speeds, I hear a loud plasticky creak in the rear cargo area. I've tried removing the cargo shade, tried folding down the seats, re-arranging the seatbelts and even tried driving with the rear hatch open just in case it was the hatch flexing while shut. I've even taken the entire spare tire assembly out. Nothing has worked. I'm thinking it's an issue with the sunroof flexing or some sort of trim panel in the back. Anyone have the same issue and know of a way to remedy it at home?

Yes, hearing a similar sound and can't figure it out. Just had the Sirius fix done where the rear qtr. panel was removed/replaced. Suspecting it might be something having to do with that.

I've had similar issues and done many of the same trial fixes. Brought in for service but the rattle/creek continues. Did either of you ever get a fix or just turn your radio up as I sadly do sometimes ��

My Service Dept. (which is usually quite good) looked at mine. They thought is was some broken fastener in the rear passenger-side door panel; but I still hear it, so not convinced they got it yet.

Thanks for the message back. Mine seems to be coming from the rear passenger side as well. Hard to pinpoint. Dealership has tried but the rattle still there. I'll post if a solution is found.

I have a rattle also when driving on a gravel road but it is coming more from the passenger rear door area I think.

That seems to be the place. Clarifying mine is the rear passenger side too.

I'm wondering and trying to pinpoint if it has anything to do with the windowshade-style cargo cover and how it is mounted in the cargo sidewalls.

I removed the cargo cover and the rattle still persisted. I still think it is coming from the door.

Maybe there is something inside the door that fell to the bottom or a wire harness that's loose.
