Rear Shelf Rattle

The rear shelf in the GTI attaches using two prongs with a rubber surface. These rotate when the rear hatch is opened for cargo access. However, the shelf rattle constantly over every ... single ... bump.

So I picked up some sticky backed felt, used for protecting furniture. It was thicker than other felt I've found, which is good for sound insulation, but it refused to mold to the prong properly. I glued them down with super glue, which seemed to do the trick.
