Hey all,

Its a little metal clip. They secure the hatch's plastic trim to the metal bodywork. One of several that are used. It becomes loose in its retaining slot. Mine has had it since newly new 2 years ago. Either the left or right vertical area of the rear hatch.

More likely to get further problems if they don't put the trim back on properly :D.

It looks like this......

If not look at the strut's internals being loose.

I thought I had the metal clip problem too, so returned to the dealers as part of warranty to get it fixed. Turned out the strut was actually the rattling noise, so they replaced both struts...
