The fix from Kia failed to fully remove the rattle, but this video helped me eliminate it almost completely.I found this video not sure if it has been posted here before.
I did this fix last weekend and so far it has eliminated the hatch rattle and "thunk." SO HAPPY! Kia had put between three and five very thin washers on the bolts and it wasn't enough. I put two of the new M8 washers I bought at Home Depot on each bolt since the Kia washers were so thin and some were bent.The fix from Kia failed to fully remove the rattle, but this video helped me eliminate it almost completely.
Go out and buy 4 M8 washers, and add one on top of only one of the Kia washers and you'll be happy.
Did you perform the fix shown in the video a few posts above yours? I did that fix and it has completely fixed the issue for about 2 months now. No rattle or thunk over bumps anymore even in really cold weather.Has anyone noticed if their rear hatch rattle is coming from just one side, or from both sides?
My Stinger is still afflicted after several "fixes". The annoying rattle gets louder and happens more often (some days constantly) in cold weather, almost like the bumper parts harden and/or the gap between the hatch and the rear bumper area becomes wider.
Throughout, my impression has been that the rattle originates from the right rear bumper. I don't discern any rattle coming from the left bumper. I've tried adjusting the screw-ins on the hatch in various combinations, but nothing seems to get rid of the rattle. Very disappointing that this is still a problem after more one year of ownership.
I'd be interested to learn if other owners are hearing which side(s) their rear hatch rattles are coming from. Thanks.
Neoprene M8 washers x 8 (2 for each bolt).Did you perform the fix shown in the video a few posts above yours? I did that fix and it has completely fixed the issue for about 2 months now. No rattle or thunk over bumps anymore even in really cold weather.
Where did you learn that replacing the entire "spoiler" is the only way to keep the black liner from working its way out? That seems drastic to me. Fitment has to be the issue, not the actual parts: the way a particular vehicle got assembled was faulty, so taking it down and putting it back together properly should work the trick.I have some rattling in the cold weather with my GT1. Dealer says no TSB applies. Also want to know has anyone had Kia replace the spoiler- this is the only way to fix the black gasket that’s out of place between the hatch and spoiler. I’m very concerned about a color match of a new non factory painted part.
That's a thought, alright. But Kia would be losing a lot of money if this problem appears on enough cars. It would be smarter to make the various parts available. Eventually, service and mechanic personnel will know what to look for. But an experience pool takes time to build.This is how the dealer wants to fix it. I think the one concern is that the gasket is actually already damage from being out of place and you can not buy just the foam gasket.
the hatch rattle issue seems to have been fixed by owners adding their own washers ( mostly )Hi. I have been off this board for a while, because, unfortunately I am no longer physically comfortable in a low slung car. I had been ready to order a Stinger. Now I am waiting for the 2020 ford Explorer ST w/ rear wheel bias AWD and 400HP. It is redesigned for 2020 and coming out Dec of this year.
ANYWAY, what was the general outcome of the squeaking rear hatches? Has it been fixed to last 100,000 miles?
Thanks, enjoy your Stingers!!
