Door rattle

So before I start to tear into my door, I want to know exactly what this sound is. Have a short video clip of it here...and its a lot louder in person.



It only does it when the window is all the way down. I'm guessing its the window rattling on its tracks but then again I could be way off. It does it when I shut the door, or when driving on bumpy road.

What is this, and the fix for it?

Re: Door rattle

If you look on the inside edge (latch side) of the door you will see a small metric bolt head under the latch.. tighten it up.. This bolt holds the window track frame secure.. Do not over tighten, it is breakable.. And its metric 6 x 1.00mm (Part # 90901-19029)

I'm proud to have had the privilidge to meet some of the greatest CT'zens in the world. At mini-meets, meet n greets, car shows and TacOberFest. It all started right here..

Re: Door rattle

Just did mine as well. Took longer than it should have to figure it out.

Re: Door rattle

Mine does that even with everything tight. I can pull the windows up and down a little bit without cranking them.

Re: Door rattle

Take the door off and build a tube door.

Problem solved.
