Silicone the top of the lid to the supporting brackets, alot of the time the sealant that was originally put there has gone brittle. This usually helps alot, next step if u want it alot better is sound deadening materiel, the heavier the better.

mmm, i'm guessing i'm going to have to do this at some stage.
silicone certainly sounds like the best option.
my door trims vibrate/rattle or something so i have to work out a way to get them nice and solid, sick of the noise!

trust me its the boot! lol i mean the whole boot rattles really really bad, ive got 146db inside the car from the woofers, the boot wont even stay up when i open it now, it is fa*ked. the whole back of the car rattles really loud, not that i can hear it in the car though..

Silicon will always work, but make sure it's the right kind and can be used on metal, some cause corrosion, just check the label :)
