15' Jeep HA Driver Door Rattle, Dynamat / Warranty?

Hey All,

I have a question for the community: I've had my 15' Jeep HA for a bit now. I love the rig. I'm having an issue with the drivers side door - there is an annoying rattle during most songs played over the HK audio system. If I take my left knee and press firmly against the door it goes away. Do you believe this is something I should have the dealer try to fix?

Because of this, I've also looked into Hushmat / Dynamat for the vehicle. Does anyone have any experience with either of these products in either a HA, Overland, or Summit?

Thanks in advance for any help!


Best,

T

I just got a 2015 Summit and have the exact same issue. With mine, I can tell it's the locking system, something in there is loose. Over some bumps, any bass in a song etc and I can hear it rattle. If I unlock the car and wiggle the lock part that sticks up, it's much looser on the drivers side than the passenger side. I'm going to take it to the dealer next week.

Thanks for your feedback. Let me know what the dealership says about your issue. If you have some success i'll give my local dealer a try. I completely understand your frustration - I hate rattles of any kind.

I have had my High Altitude for all of 6 days now and have also noticed a small rattle in the drivers door when the HK Audio is turned up loud. I figured it was just something sitting in the little door pocket.

I'll have to look more into it tomorrow.

Investigate it yourself. A dealership trip would be a lot of wasted time, some dirty technician handling and disassembling your new jeep and will probably break a couple clips on the door panel in the process or not even put it back together correctly.

Removing the door panel is simple, take a few minutes of your time and see what you can come up with on your own. I would bother with dynamat, but that's just me. Maybe if needed some padded foam insulation in an area that you think needs it, but nothing more. Make sure all the door clips are in place and everything in the panel is tight and same as on the door itself.

Yup, took your advice, popped on Youtube and removed the door panel myself. Was a little nerve racking pulling hard enough to pop the rivets out but it only took about 10 minutes. It was pretty clear in a few areas where the long, metal lock "pin" was hitting or vibrating against the door. I added electric tape to those spots, put it all back together, turned the radio way up to make sure and no more vibration! We'll see but I think that fixed it.

Kind of hard to tell in the picture but, in the red circle, there's a rubber gasket where the metal rod goes into the door. That rubber gasket was missing on mine
