Mazda 3 1.6 2012 Parcel Shelf
« on: September 03, 2018, 03:28:20 PM »
Just want to know if any mk2 owners have a squeaky/rattling parcel shelf? My shelf is really bad and its very thin!

Thanks

Sorted the rattling out by putting foam tape were the shelf rests on plastic trim.

Aye; I was going to say the same thing. It was just about my only gripe when I first took ownership of this car. I bought some felt strips off ebay to line the area you describe, which silenced it.
So I was stood there trying to work out why the cricket ball was getting larger and larger...and then it hit me.

Yes, it happens in my 2010 Sport now as well. I think what's happened is that over time having the sun shining on it etc it has actually shrunk and no longer fits as snug as it once did.

Going to try the same thing with the foam tape and also put some tape around the plastic where it slots into the shelf hinge to stop it sliding about. There seems to be a lot of play in it there as well.
