Have this intermittent noise coming from the rear of the car, usually triggered by a corrugated road, but also by potholes. Today I tested my theory and took out the compact spare and tried again. Success! The spare is held down at one point only on the edge, which allows the rest of the wheel to bang about. German engineering at it's best? Does anyone else have this problem?

Nope, don't have your problem as I removed the space saver very early on and have a full-sized spare sitting upright on the off-side of boot.

I did, however, have a similar very annoying rattle coming from the rear. Thought it was coming from the tailgate so I stripped the trim but no joy. Pulled all my tools, air compressor, and recovery gear out of the under-floor space - still the rattle persisted.

Eventually traced the annoying rattle to be merely the plastic trim around the cargo net clip holder thingy on the back of the RH rear seat back rattling against the little metal bar. Bit of velcro and rattle gone.
