Just bought some of that obliterated stuff after stuggling for months with the tar...oh how easy it was to remove!

How did you get the boot handle off? Just brute force or is there a knack to it?

You have to take the full plastic cover off the inside of the boot lid. There is one 7mm hex bolt and the rest is clipped on very tight.

When this is off you'll see the 2 7mm hex bolt holding the switch/handle.

I originally wanted just the badge off but its not separate and one big mould.

What I have found is the windscreen air vent is pretty bad and one of my main culprits. Its not the covers, its the actual plastic ducts under it that bang together and echo through the dash.
The cover just clips on and a small piece of foam wedged around the ducting does the trick.

Everything is basically clipped in and requires a trim tool to remove safely and you'll see the 7mm hex bolts for the screen and clocks.
Is this the air vent you said needs foam round it?
The plastic ducts inside seem pretty solid to me

They feel solid but where rattling (or something was rattling against them) until I wedged something around the edge.

I think it was the ducts rattling against the trim that clips over them. I’ve just stuck foam strips everywhere where they’ll be contact. Hope this works. I’ll report back in a few days!
I’ve run a strip of foam along the top of the speed dials aswell because it was a bit creaky!

I left the covers off mine for a week and they still rattled. Pulling the ducts you can hear them making a clicking sound which in turn stops the rattle, but it always returned until I wedged that area.

I actually pulled the clocks and wedged some foam around the dials which wedged tight when putting back together.
