Has anyone noticed rattling coming from the rear backseat or trunk? Its sometimes difficult to isolate noise, but from the drivers seat I hear rattling that sounds like its from the rear seats. I thought maybe the seat buckles, or maybe the rear seats (folding/unfolding) or the trunk lid cover and I adjusted all of those a little and still hear the rattling.

Rattling noise

I’ve got noise coming from rear suspension or brakes, but it’s more like a rubbing noise. And it does like one two, two distinct noise one after another. I reported them, but like someone else said, dealer is only looking at what Jaguar tells them to do.

Noticed another issue, my drivers side windshield wiper is swiping past the windshield and into the pillar. Probably not good for the paint even though it is rubber.

I had something similar but I was able to trace it back to one of the back seats not being fully latched.

My loaner (I-Pace FE) has some pretty 'squeaky' brakes... especially at the stop/start speed of 1-2mph, but since a loaner I haven't bothered to care.

I can confirm the rattling isn't coming from the trunk mat. Its either the back seats or seat belts. I need someone to sit in the back to figure it out

I'm in the same boat. I have the same noise coming from the back and it drives me nuts.

Haha lucky you! My I-Pace is in the shop for the next 2-3 weeks due to infotainment and climate control screens going dark and all they had to give me was a Hyundai Tuscon. By the time I get my I-Pace back I'll have spent about $800 to drive around in a 3 year old Tuscon. I'm so sad to say that I feel like my next 3+years will be just waiting to get to a breakeven point where I can go buy a more reliable electric, of which there will be many great choices by 2021-2022. I can pretty much already say I won't be getting a Jag again, mostly due to how awfully slow the service is when you have issues. Only 2 dealers in my county and both are backed up 3 weeks for service at all times. I'd be more forgiving if I could get my car back within 3-4 days, but knowing it'll be 2-3 weeks (minimum) EVERY TIME there's an issues is just bonkers bat **** crazytown stupid. My last car was a Chevy Volt and it hardly ever needed anything in 3.5 years, and when it did, I was able to get an appt within 2-3 days and they fixed it within 1-2 days after that.

I am really going to try to avoid the dealer until the first scheduled service in two years. Yes my screens are not always perfect but mostly good and self reset if given a bit of patience.

On topic.... my only rattle noise is a creak when going a bit diagonal up a driveway entrance. Seems like the frame twists some and the rear seats or something gives a creaking noise as I go up a driveway ramp. Not enough to endure the pain of going to the dealer and losing the use of the I-Pace.

I'm going to wait until there is a software update and I will bring the car in for that along with the rattling remediation. When you drive an electric car you hear sounds that you may not hear with an ICE car. The rattling makes me nuts. Hopefully when there is a software update it will fix intermittent Carplay issues (not running when you plug the phone in) and the right side of the dash screen. I have the display set to navigation and sometimes it jist shows an image of the I-Pace until i manually go in and toggle the display between navigation and odometer.

I have the same rattling noise from the back seat and it´s gone when I fold down the right seat.
I tried everything from fixing the seat belts, removing everything from the trunk and put tape on all moving parts... no luck so far... it´s driving me nuts

Now hat I have had the front suspension/struts updated, I now notice the same noise also.

I made sure nothing was moving in the trunk, but just something else to troubleshoot, or just live with.

Any body else have a very high pitched but very quiet whine for 10-15 seconds at a time intermittently while driving? Doesn’t vary with speed or with braking. Thought maybe was the sound system but persists with sound system off. Ideas?

Never mind figured it out. It’s the climate fan. Anyone else hear this with cabin fan on? Seems louder at higher fan speeds.

Yes it seems to be the AC compressor - like a quiet but squeaky fan belt. Turn off the AC and it goes away. Drives me crazy and I'm considering a dealer visit although expecting the "it's normal and you only hear it because it's a quiet car" brush off.
