Rattling from back of car

So I've been hearing rattling (you hear everything when you have an electric car). I thought it might be the seat belt rubbing against the door or against the plastic clip. That wasnt it. I thought it might be the cargo cover but I removed it and still heard it. I then thought maybe the headrests so I repositioned it. Still rattling. I folded the seats down but the rattling is still there, but a little less pronounced. I cant figure out there the **** rattling is coming from.
I had someone sit in the back seat and the rattling mostly disappeared. It seems like when someone is in the backseat its a lot less pronounced. Has anyone else encountered rattling and figure out where its coming from?



The dealer thought it was seat belt then cargo cover but its neither.

something loose (like the tow hooks) in the trunk base?

If it is not the seat belts and the sound seems to lessen with passengers in the back seat, if you haven't checked under the rear storage where the 120v charge cable is located. You might try pulling out the stuff under the rear storage as sciencegeek suggests and see if the rattle goes away. Any other rattle after you've removed loose stuff, wrapped the seatbelts, and made sure seatbacks are secure is likely a fit and finish problem. You may need to dealer to take a ride and then go through and tighten things up.

Did you check in the "laptop storage space" under the rear seats to see if something slipped in there and is rattling around when you drive?

The I-Pace manual describes it as "Storage bins and umbrella holder under the rear seats", but I saw an early ad with someone slipping a laptop in there and it stuck with me
jsimon7777 and dtgsrq like this.

For the rear seat belts, look at the stop of the outer seats. Next to the release buttons you'll see a small hook. Ensure that the belts are looped into hooks. This will position the clip part away from the harder trim pieces between seat and the doors, and the doors themselves. I found that to be a source of "rattle" when the belts are not "in the loop" about the need to be quiet.

I looked at the laptop hooks and I would say the seatbelt barely stays within the hook. I would say its more of a guide but there definitely is no plastic against plastic...just the fabric of the seatbelt near the hook
