Noise in the trunk Volvo S90 : Built up dirt that triggers poor closing
We will therefore begin with a trunk noise on your Volvo S90 caused by dirt accumulated on your joints, lock for example. In fact, it is plausible that on a car that is already a few years old and whose cleaning is not always a top priority or that the roads used are not very clean that dirt collects at the trunk gasket. This trouble triggers a poor closure of the trunk and a noise that can sound like a crack. To check if you are in this condition, open the trunk of your Volvo S90, verify the condition of the gasket that goes around the entire tailgate and clean it with a wet/soap cloth, dry the whole thing and try to close the trunk and take a dentred road to see the improvement. If this is not the case, continue to the other hypotheses that will probably give a solution.

Second probability, you may also, over time, knowledge a locking system that has taken up some play. And this is one of the most potential possibilities. In fact, knowing a trunk noise on your Volvo S90 is very often linked to this trouble. Several solutions are available to you depending on the level of play you have with your lock. The first is that in some cases the offset is minimal and a simple greasing of the system with thick grease is enough to eliminate the issue. Secondly, it is also plausible that you really have a lot of play on your lock and that each time the trunk “jumps”, in which case you would have to remove the cover that enables access to the lock (inside the trunk). Then, using torx screws, you unscrew the striker attached to the threshold, simply push it back a little towards the inside of the trunk and tighten it again. Make sure to check the centering of the striker in relation to the trunk lock. If after checking out the trunk of your Volvo S90 closes badly, it means that you have moved it too far, replicate the procedure by pushing the striker less.

Finally, one of the last possibilities. It is that following a license plate change you were unfortunate and that a piece of rivet fell at the rear of your plate. In fact, when a plate replacement is done, to remove the old one the technique used is to drill the existing rivets to be able to released the license plate.
