Rear deck rattles

I have a BIG problem with the rear deck rattling while playing music. When I put the sunshade up it gets a little better. Has anyone had any experience getting rid of these rattles? Dynomat?

I HATE RATTLES

I had this problem, it turned out to be the third brake light rattling against the rear window.

Solution....some double side cellophane tape to dampen the vibration.

I had the same thing it was the "shelf" that the woofers sit in. BMW actually put in a whole new shelf but when they got done the back seats rattled! So they ended up putting double sided tape under the seat backs. It's good now.

I have a rattle coming from the rear sun-shade, at least thats what it sounds like. I'm really not sure. But it is annoying as F*@#. I guess I'll have a friend drive so I can detect exactly where the rattle is coming from. So the best solution is ???

I tried raising the sunshade and it went away for a little bit, then outta no-where it started again. I will check the rear brake light too.

My rattle was the seat belt hooks for the child seats, I simply lifted up on the plastic cover and left it tilted a little. Not all the way in and not completely removed, although I did not have the M-Bass option on that car.

Ive actually had the problem fixed under warranty, only to have it return 3 days later. It seems the only real fix is a good layer of dynamat and double sided tape

I messed with the rear shade a little, kinda just pulled it away from the glass just slightly and let it snap back into place, now the noise has seemed to dissappear. Not really sure why its gone now, but hopefully it won't comeback.
