    Trunk issues

    Ok. So I know the forum is called interior/exterior enhancements and I figured this barely fit. I need help guys. I have a 1999 toyota avalon. My trunk keeps rattling. I bought some weather stripping to help. So far I've applied it to the inside of the fuel lid, the edge of the trunk and I've even taken OFF the license plate to put W.S there. Sadly it still sounds bad. Please advise!!! To the mods out there, sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

    Sound deadener is probably your only out here. I know it seems expensive, but it's not as bad as you think. I use Noico 80mil and it works very well. You can get 10 square feet on Amazon for $20. That's enough to do your trunk lid and sides as well as take care of the license plate. You can also pick up a roller for $10 to install it with.

    you'll need some deadener and a giant can of great stuff expanding foam, fill in all cavities of the trunk lid. Also get some screws to fully screw in the top and bottom of the license plate.

    Re: Trunk issues

    I just looked at the sound deadner. Are you sure that's what I need? I'm not 100% sure where the rattle is even coming from. I barely hear it in the car and outside is horrible. I pushed on the bottom of the trunk, right below the license and it stopped making the noise, but I had to push kinda hard. Same recommendations?

    You know how badly this would make a great reply?!

    Oh btw, I have some of that GP deadening....stuff is fairly thick, kinda like memory foam on one side and the other side a thin layer of adhesive matting.

    I actually ended up doing this since my license plate was rattling and so was the interior emergency trunk release.
    Iíve read it doesnít sound as great when facing rear seats versus firing towards rear of car, is this true?

    Well, does it sound better?, Generally facing the trunk is louder unless, you seal it if while facing the cabin..

    Honestly Iíve noticed such a small difference thatís itís me negligible compared to before with all the rattling.
    Iím waiting on sound deadening material to hopefully help out.

    Let us know if you manage to mitigate the rattling your referring to! Especially your plate rattle
