Had my C-hr for a week now and noticed that when l close the boot the number plate rattles against the metal and makes a tinny sound.

Sounds like the boot is made of cheap tin. Has anybody else got this problem.?

Same here. Although I suspect it's the horrible surround the dealer seems to have put on the car.
Tempted to take it off and have the plate directly on the car. Would certainly solve any vibration issues.
I suspect it is also the cause of a rattle when going over pot holes.

I will remove it tonight and see if it fixes it.

Thanks for the replay.

Had a word with the dealer and he said if l bring it in they will put sticky pads behind the number plate and that should stop the rattling. They know about the issue.

Think I will still take mine off and wax all underneath. Always forget when I'm cleaning it.

I always use double sided tape all around the plateholder. It will not rattle and no water will leak behind it after a wash.

I found the same. On closing the boot it made the car sound so cheap!

I put a few felt pads on the back of the number plate as a quick fix.
