Rattling noise around trunk/rear interior panel removal

I hear a rattle on the right side, just behind the rear seat. It seems to be inside a plastic panel about shoulder level when sitting on the back seat in the trunk area.
I was able to take off a plastic trim piece by the rear, passenger that was held by two metal clips. The plastic piece just behind what I took out seems to be where the rattle is coming from. Is it possible to pull that out?

I heard an unusual creak/rattle from the cargo area the other day too, haven't dug into it tho.

Post some pics of what you removed and how.

From the Munro documents, it looks like there are three trim pieces that cover the passenger side wall of the trunk area. The bottom piece is called "Passenger Side Lower Quarter Panel Soft Trim Asm". It contains the trunk light. Above that, mostly horizontal is the "Upper Quarter Panel Hard Trim Asm PS". The part that runs up both the C and D pillars is "C&D-Pillar Trim Asm PS".

Looks like the bottom one has two tabs on the forward edge that have holes for fasteners but no fasteners are listed as part off the assembly.

+3 on having this rattle in the rear area from day one. Thanks for posting and narrowing down the area where the rattle is located.

I had to remove my 'hatch cover' to remove the rattles in right rear. Didn't realize there was another location for those problems.

Specifically, this is what got my attention to my rattle: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/i01- ... 1VnXybWJ2Y
