Does anyone else get a clunking from the hatch when going over uneven ground? eg. reversing out of a driveway
Mine has coilovers with stiff springs so that may exacerbate the issue.

This guide is much appreciated, only 2k miles into ownership & I cringe on bumpy roads.

Went to try this today but the 2 plastic Philips screws at the top do not want to come out. They just turn aimlessly. The metal bolts - no problem.

Anyone else have bother with these? I abandoned the project for fear of breaking anything.

Tried it on my previous 1 series and the plastic screws we’re having none of it. Got it on my current 1 series and asked them to look at it when it went in for the EGR replacement and they said they didn’t have time.

Would they still fix this under warranty as my card only a year and a half old?
