door rattle from bass

I have a really annoying rattle/vibration coming from the driver side door. Only comes when volume is up or when there is strong bass. Goes away if I push on the door panel with my knee.

Is there an easy way to resolve? should i let the dealer at it or should I try to pop the panel off and do something myself? i have the lifetime bump to bumper warranty but not sure if this would even be covered and dont want to pay $100 deductible to tighten some fastener somewhere.

any advice? thanks

Brian

Maybe getting some dyno mat... I believe it's called but that's going to run you more that 100.00

Only way to really tell is remove the door panel and check. Not hard to do at all. Do you have aftermarket speakers?

Re: door rattle from bass

Had a similiar issues with my Limited. Once the door panel was removed, I was able to tighten the screws that fasten some parts of the wood trim and other misc pieces to the door panel. Problem solved.

Just remember these screws go into plastic so don't go all Terminitor when you tighten them. Ended up pulling all 4 door panels off and checking all the trim screws.

Thanks. Any risk of breaking anything pulling the panel off or pretty simple?

Re: door rattle from bass

You need a door panel removal tool. It's essentially a crowbar. Without it you can easily break the door panel into several pieces.

Sorry for the late reply and thanks to Rage for picking up my slack.

Yes, a panel/trim tool is HIGHLY recommended. Other than that, it's basically the same removal steps as any other door panel.
