Tailgate rubber stops. Where can I buy a pair online?


Hi. My tailgate rattles and I think part of the problem is that the rubber stops have got old, less springy, and so do not hold the tailgate in the correct position. Any idea where I can buy a pair online?Image
Thanks

Fixing your link and the rubber doesn't look that bad.
Have you checked your struts, hinges and lock position for looseness ?

Thanks. I think the U shaped part of the lock mechanism (the part that is on the bottom edge of the load area not on the tailgate) has a tendency to shift after a few hours driving. To stop the rattling I loosen and retighten the bolts holding it but the rattle returns every time.

How do I adjust the position of the lock itself or the hinges to try to see if that solves the problem? Can you point me to the relevant thread?

Thanks

I think you found your problem.

See if there are any spring washers on those latch bolts or anything else which should be there to stop it coming loose. Mine on my T30 has never come loose in 17 yrs.

If the tailgate is flush all round when you tighten the latch then the hinges and tailgate lock are OK as they are.
