    On My r230 There comes a rattle sound in the space BETWEEN the cabin and boot, it sounds like something has gone loose and hanging from a wire dangling. What are There in space Between cabin and trunk and how do i get access to the space so I can see what is wrong.

    Isn't that where the fuel tank is. Could it be a loose baffle?

    Hello and welcome and yes the dreaded fuel tank baffle loose, either you pull it out through the pump aperture or replace the tank and a very expensive job at that

    Maybe I do not understand quite what to write, but is it corect understood that the tank is located between the cabin and luggage space.?

    The sound typically occurs during acceleration or deceleration, as if something hangs on a cord and hit a thin metal plate
