Rattling tailgate

Any options to fix a rattling tailgate in a defender 90? Appears bolts are tightened well enough.

I guess I need to check that part out. Can it be tightened or does it have to be replaced.

Rebuild the hinges on the tailgate ($6 per) and replace the rubber bumper ($3). Worry about bushings last. Usually if you grease them they are fine.
