2008 Trunk Lid Rattle

I performed a search on the site for trunk rattle but found little information for rattles on the 2008 and up cars.

I have a 2008 WRX and I am getting a rattle that sounds like it is coming inside and under the rear plastic trunk cover. I have the 4 door model.

This rattle comes at low RPM when the car vibrates more, usually 2nd gear when going through neighborhood corners.

My question is, does anyone have any instructions on how to remove the cover so I can inspect the inside for anything that may be loose, or has anyone else had this problem in a 2008?

The cover on the trunk lid just pops off. I had to remove mine on my WRX when I added a spoiler. I would think the trunk release cable in your problem. The little plastic holders aren't very good. A few zip ties would probably fix it up for you.
