Default Small rear rattling noise?

The past couple days now going over a bump or even when i start my car it makes a small rattle coming from the rear but it literally sounds like my tail light on my wing is cracked possibly and a piece of glass is rattling around? Any ideas? If it is can i just screw it out of the wing and check?

Id normally agree but it sounds like its coming from the top side of the rear end. Like the light or possibly something with the hatch maybe?

Hatch struts probably. They rattle like crazy. My camaro and T/A both did it.

I found that the panel between the lights ( with CAMARO script ) is making a clunk/rattle sound. At first I thought it was the spare tire jack etc so I opened the side panel and started hitting the spare in there to find the source.
Well I found the source of ONE noise anyway...Haha!
