Morning guys, not sure if this has been covered before but my Vespa back box is rattling due to the lock not quite holding the lid down enough. Spanish roads are not that great at times and the rattling is driving me bonkers. The box locks but there is a slight play which rattles constantly ................. any ideas to fix this.

Hey!

There are two places on the top case that could rattle:

The circumferential seal between the base and lid (possibly missing or slipped, if necessary, use thicker rubber e.g. window seal/U-profile) or the rubber bumpers on the bottom (missing or are not in the position between the top case and folding carrier / luggage bridge).

If a folding luggage carrier is used, this itself could also be the cause.
