Had my DS in the shop this week to address what sounded like a chirping or squeaking from what I thought was the backseat area. Turns out it was not the backseat - it was coming from a loose assembly in the left tail light. The service guys said that it was a known issue at Land Rover and there is a specific bulletin on it. They got into the assembly and tightened everything down and now my annoying squeak is gone. Really hoping it does not come back.

Sorry - they did not document a bulletin number on the paperwork. The work order states that they traced the noise to the rear left light housing. They then disassembled and replaced the contact padding and torqued to spec.

Noticed your location is in San Jose. Did you get this done at the Stevens Creek dealership?
Yes I did. Brian was my service advisor and he should be familiar with the issue. Let me know if you need anything further. I take it you are up the peninsula near SFO?

I got mine at the SJ Land Rover. I'll schedule a repair. Thanks.

I noticed the squeaking sound from the rear the first week and they fixed the left tail light. All good!

I hear the ticking sound and don't believe it is in the pilar. I think it is the plastic bottoms of the rear doors sitting funny or moving. If I open the door, move it some, close it then it goes away for a good while. I may throw some camper tape or foam tape between it and the door to see if it stops for good.

I also had my rear licens plate flapping and banging when I closed the tailgate. I put foam tape on the back of the license plate and holder... All good!

Lastly, I hear a squeak from the rear right. If you slide your rear seat back and the bottom rail is exposed, it squeaks on bumps. I am going to grease ot before bringing it in.

The only interior noise I'm getting (knock on wood) is a slight ticking sound coming the driver side of the center console (near where the left AC control knob is)... It usually comes and goes as the car is cold, but the weather's been warming up now and I don't hear it as often. That being said - when it was super cold (single digits), I got some random creaks here and there...but my friend's new Audi and BMWs do that too, as soon as the car has a chance to flex and warm up it's all fine.

The reassembled the driver side rear light assembly (the portion on the tailgate) and re applied a tape adhesive liner of sort and that has solved the problem.

Great - sounds like the same repair that I had. Thanks for the update.

Took my car in for the same squeaking noise twice. The noise came from the tail light and the mid trim of the tail gate. 1st time they fixed it, drove for 300 miles and the noise came back. Took it back and 2nd time they installed "Rattles Kits to replace old foam pads."

So it seem that LR knew about the issue and had a kit to fix the issue. Check with your dealer service.

Had the same issue on my 2016 DS. Took it to the dealer twice. They replaced rear taillights and tailgate trim; neither resolved the issue. I fixed this on my own by removing the rear taillights and throwing my favorite Phil Wood waterproof bike grease on the plastic parts where the taillight and tailgate trim meet -- it's been silent ever since.
