So I couldn't stand it anymore. The rattle from the rear was driving me crazy and seemed to be getting worse. So I spent 4 hours and took out the shelf. Had to remove rear seat bottom, side trim, center brake light. Quite a puzzle. Must say though the fit and finish and fitment of all parts was pretty impressive. I took my Golf R apart a few times and thought it was well built. Well I'd say the 6 is a step above in parts quality. Yes the 6 isn't as "solid" as the German, but the parts are equal or better. Everything went back together easily.
Unfortunately, I did not kill the rattle? I used foam tape on some cables and added extra foam cushion between the steel shelf and the Bose speakers on the rear deck because I though I heard the rattle when I jiggled them.
Anyone else have any luck killing this fucking rattle. Such a wonderful car but the rattle is driving me nuts. I know some thought it maybe the cable from the folding seat release, but I added extra cushion in area without any change.
What's interesting is the rattle seems to get worse as the car warms up. Wonder if it's under the cabin? Also wonder if the seat belt mechanism maybe the culprit.
