Sorry for the delay getting back but I have been busy. Here is a photo of the hinge assembly and the ringed item is the part referred to.

It is a small nut top adjuster on both sides of the bonnet top just near the hinge. I will try to photo it later.
Thanks, will have another look later too (as long as it isn’t still raining). A picture would be helpful too anyway, but not a worry if you don’t get a chance

It may be tomorrow before I can photograph the actual part on the car. At present the rain is torrential. there were also members on here who found wiring not secured near the bulkhead and top of the wing that rattled when cold.

No worries at all. It’s been raining all day here anyway so probably won’t be until tomorrow or Friday that I get a chance to look anyway. I’ll also have a check there, though interestingly it does sound like it’s coming from the inside (though it may not be haha)

Not my car but another member who found the problem.

I've just taken a look at these felt pads on the bonnet hinges on my just over 2000 miles old XE. Sure enough the pads have already migrated half off!
What a poor design. The solution noted by one poster of putting a rubber cap over the bolts is a much better one and should have been used by JLR.

Same as mine were when I checked @chrisjp. I removed them, cleaned the backing and refitted them using a stronger bonding glue.

Hero. Hopefully we get a bit of sunshine tomorrow and I can take a look. Would like to figure it out once and for all! Hahah

Had a quick look when I got back from Aldi, and by no surprise the little pads were gone (apart from a bit basically hanging by a thread!). Will find something to replace it and fingers crossed it stops the rattle! Thanks all for the help and advice, will report back soon...
