There is a
quick and easy way
to fix the Rear Hatch rattle problem!
UPDATE: Toyota has come out with
a revised Rubber Bumper setup to fix this problem. Part number
From Lance, another MKIV owner….
Much to my surprise, the new blocks were only $8.00. Not only
that, but Toyota redesigned the blocks to further avoid the problem. If you do remove the
old ones, BEWARE. The factory puts blue Loctite on the screws (they are Phillips pan
heads) so you need to make sure you get a square insertion in the screw head. I found out
the hard way, I had to drill the head off one screw and EZ out the rest of the screw. Not
a task for the faint of heart. The new blocks are worth every penny.
Both Sides, Left and Right!
