Ticking Noise from Boot/Trunk

Post by dshseus » Tue Dec 15, 2015 6:00 am

Hi everyone - since B-pillar was brought up in recent discussions, I thought I would share a new ticking noise I have been experiencing that sounds just like the B-pillar ticking rattle. The dealer thought it was the 2nd row seat so they tighten up some bolt and called it fixed, but it was never fixed.

I have been hearing this ticking noise almost the same time I started hearing the B-pillar rattle (oh wait, that is the day I bought my 2015 DS), however it was on and off most of the time and it was not that loud (well B-pillar was my primary concern at that time since it was just right next to my ear). Since the B-pillar rattle was "kind of" fixed, and the weather has been very cold in the past few weeks, this noise has now become the primary noise that catches my ears' attention. The colder, the louder.

Listen to the video I recorded, and compare to the B-pillar ticking rattle I recorded a while ago, don't they sound the same?

My previous upload of B-pillar ticking rattle:

If anyone has ever heard of this in their DS, please let me know where the noise was actually located. Thanks!

Could be the C and D pillar also. Land Rover will not agree that the fault is everywhere?
I have some people mention on this forum that it is not just the B pillar that is isolated?

A member asked me to upload mp3 version of the ticking noise, since her/his device cannot play m4v file:

It might be the boot cover ticking, try driving without it.

Did you mean the rubber boot cover (part of the protection package)? The noise sounds like something solid that hits/taps something else, it's interesting if rubber causes that.

No, I meant the retractible boot cover that closes the boot space just under the windows level.

Oh I see, I don't have that installed on my DS.

Oh, then I guess it's not the thing that makes the ticking noise :)

I just had two of my coworkers sat on the 2nd and 3rd row seats, and they pinpointed the ticking noise is from either D-pillar or tailgate. The funny thing is that when the 3rd row seat is up, the noise is less noticeable.

go check the above thread. not saying it is that but worth checking it out (was the source of my ticking noise coming from the back...)
louder when it is cold and gone when it is wet?
