...definitely hoping that this is the fix for mine. That rattle has been driving me off the wall. I also need to figure out the rattle that's in the headliner just above the driver's seat.

I am thinking instead of weather stipping tape, how about wide gap foam spray?

I honestly have been having this issue lately on my 2015 Scion tC, I randomly started hearing it one day. I'm not sure if I really wanna do this,
but considering, I work for a body shop I guess if I mess it up I can always have them fix it lol! Thanks for the information.

Self-stick furniture pads may last longer than window stripping. Mine are seven years old and still work fine. Approximately 1/8th inch thickness should work.

Open the hatch and look at the rear bumper cover. You should see two divots (where the soft rubber hatch bumpers meet the rear bumper cover.) Stick one furniture pad to each divot. This will close the gap between the lower hatch bumpers and the rear bumper cover, preventing the upper hatch bumpers from clunking together.
