Saab used to have a kit to eliminate rattles from the hatch area. The parts to tighten up the decor panel were just rubber washers. Take the panel off and get some small rubber washers to go between it and the body.

Open your tailgate and remove the carpet trim; from here look at the fasteners that clearly pass through the steel skin, remove those that correspond with the rattles and lift off the trim panel and deaden the vibes with what you can.
