Rattle in the passenger door.

I like to bang some bass heavy music, and at mid frequencies the passenger door has a slight rattle. It is annoying. I can "fix" it by reaching across and pulling the door by the handle towards me while driving.

Question is.....has anyone taken the door panel off..or found a way to make it not rattle during bass heavy music?

All help and tips are appreciated. If I took the door panel off...I wouldn't know where to even begin applying any material to quiet the doors.

If there are stereo modders or someone who has done the procedure..please share.

Thanks very much.

Haze

Re: Rattle in the passenger door.

I have the HK sounds system and also have some annoying rattles/vibrations at loud volume (which is frequent). I was just looking around for threads and came across this possible suggestion. This was literally a few minutes ago, so I don't know if it's applicable to my specific case or yours but it's worth a look:

Re: Rattle in the passenger door.

I have a four-month old 2015 SRT and it's a rattle trap. Front and rear doors, rear hatch and somewhere in the roof.

If anyone has a solution, I'd be glad to see it. So far, I just feel like getting rid of it.


Cheers,
Ollie

Well instead of getting rid of it why not look into putting foam in between loose parts or even dynamat the door panels?

Re: Rattle in the passenger door.

I could do that but i'm more insulted that the vehicle is profoundly flawed from new.

I didn't add a more powerful sound system, I paid for it as an option. The rest of the car should be apt to handle it.

A few numbers that are really annoying:
  • I got my first car 21 years ago.
  • Since then, I've owned 20 cars.
  • Of those, 13 were new.
  • Among the new ones, only 2 have had rattles.
  • The first one was a 2006 model and the dealership fixed them without batting an eye and never told me "there's nothing we can do" or [B]", especially when it's less than 3 months old.
  • This GC SRT is my first american vehicle and it cost more than 2/3 of the previous european ones I've had before.

Worst of all, it's the first time that I've had to call the manufacturer's customer satisfaction line and was floored when they told me "There's nothing we can do about the level of service you're getting from the dealership".

What?! Try that with BMW or Audi and tell me how the franchisee reacts.

For someone who serves multiple global mega brands in marketing, I cannot understand how FCA can tell a dissatisfied customer that they have no interest in their complaints regarding the level of service given to them by the prime representatives of their brand.
