Just started to get a rattle from the tailgate (electric) on the car which is now six months old.
Noticed it on Saturday morning and after it was opened and closed once it went away.
Same again this morning. Might be the colder weather I guess.
Anyone else had this issue before I visit the dealership?

I had this same problem last year, hasnt happened this year. Dealer couldn't find a problem. I don't really know what to suggest. If you find out let me know.

OK seem to have solved this one!
The noise - more of a squeak than a rattle was coming from the tailgate rubber bump stops (at least that's what I think you call them) and was only noticable on really cold mornings.
A light application of WD 40 onto the rubber seems to have sorted this
