Hey all,


Just wondering if anyone has a fix for a noisy cargo cover aside from leaving it in the house. mine rattles with even the slightest bump.... doesen't matter if it's extended or not.

What would be better than these fancy rattling retractable covers is what you find on budget SUVs which is just a fabric cover held up by bungee cords on all four corners.

Agreed..... Well I guess it's going in the house then.

A strip of Velcro fuzz or adhesive felt in the receivers stops the "rattle" and hold the roller nice a firm.

I put weather sealing foam strip at the ends where the cover seats and still get the rattle. Part of the rattle is unfortunately internal to the housing.

PRECISELY!!!!

It's the spring mechanism in the housing that creates the rattle. This is my guess as it's a tin like rattle. At first I thought it was the tools in the tool tray so I removed everything in the cargo area. That's when I realized it's the cover.

I wonder if anyone has tried rewinding it? It's nothing more than a big roll up window blind. I know folks over on the Daytona forums have done so.

Hmmm... Do you mean tightenning it up? This would involve opening the housing no?
