Question Rattle noise coming from the back.

Hi, I'm at my first 1K and either I didn't notice it before or it started now. I'm hearing a rattle/knocking noise coming from the back. I didn't have a chance to sit in the back while someone is driving so I can't pinpoint the exact location yet. You can hear it at the lower speeds 20-25 on some rough road.

It doesn't sound like the metal type but more like plastic but not 100% sure.

I thought I'll ask if anybody experienced the similar issue with their Niro (before I'll be forced to take it to KIA).

Please advise and thanks in advance.

If the rear seat belt is twisted and caught in the return slot, the metal buckle will rattle against the plastic strip next to the seat.

I am not sure if that is what it is for you, but I know that when I placed windshield washer in the spot in the trunk it made an annoying noise. I wrapped the container in a piece of cloth and now it is quiet. I have the cargo cover, I thought that was the culprit at first.

I've had the same rattle, THOUGHT it was coming from the back, it was the front passenger seat belt, twisted and tapping the plastic side pillar next to it.

I had the exact problem. It was a faulty electric window on the passenger door. the mounting bolts were not installed correctly. Took it to the dealer and theymanager opened and closed the back door twice and said, yep can fix that. At the time I didn't even think it was the door. Took them 2 hours and no problem since.

I took my 2018 Niro PHEV to the dealer for first oil change, tire rotation and recall items. After I got the car back I noticed rattle coming from rear but too late to take it back. It's annoying but

I can't get back to dealer for awhile so just have to monitor the forum and see what others have done. I did try to plug all the seat belts in but that didn't help.

Sorry for not replying sooner.

Dealer found the issue(on the second try - first they added more padding on the battery)

It was the rear hatch - supposedly they had "similar issues" with Stinger. If the rubber is NOT aligned correctly or too tight (in my case) it can cause the rattle. After adjustment

Yea was my hatch. You can gain access to the spoiler over it and tighten one or both nuts. Just a design flaw. Needs a longer nut and bolt or better washers.
