I have a 2008 Element and the rear hatch pops loudly at various times. I had a 2006 that did the same thing. Anybody else experienced this? Dealer recognized this and could not seem to fix. Any help?

Popping? How? When?
Are you sure it's the hatch and not a rear suspension problem?

I occasionally get a noise during acceleration and braking from the hatch when I don't close it firmly enough to latch it. If you only hear it when driving over a swell or bump, the body may be flexing, the latches may need adjusting and the hinges lubrication. It's also possible the inside plastic door panel isn't fastened properly.
