Rear bumper rattle on right hand side of tire

I have not jacked up my car yet but I noticed on rear right hand side it is loose near the rear wheel well. Dose anyone now what size bolts holds this in place.

It did not end up being loose after getting it on a hoist, thought it was the splash guard but need more driving. Will know in the next week, but something seems to be rattling. All the suspension components seem to be tight.

Is the bumper rattling or is the rattling sound coming from that area? I found an annoying rattle coming from the heat shield, just a thought.

It is not the bumper rattling but it is coming from the right rear it is not that bad bud it is irritating. I will have to drive it more to see if it is still there I believe it is. The heat shield I thought was the problem but will see as it has been moved .

I had a rattle in the back that ended up being the plastic 'tube' that goes around the strut. I'm not sure what it is called, but mine was no longer attached to the top of the strut so it would rattle around when I'd go over bumps or even if I just bounced the back of the car up and down. Fixed it when I changed struts out to Konis.

The rattle is actually on the left side. I will have to drive it around more to see if it is still as bad.

It was the brake shield it was right against the disk. Bent back and the rattling is now gone.I had to listen to every single bump & I am hearing regular noise. Every now & then I hear a slight noise & think that now I am being OCD.

After more driving the rattle is still their will have to put washer behind the brake shield & see if that stops it.

Well OCD is better than ADD or ADHD or having an STD, so OCD is A-OK! CUL8R, TTFN.
