14 overland rear passenger side door rattle

So I think I figured out where my rattle was coming from in the back. I thought initially it was the trunk cover, then the spare tire, then the sunshade. None of my techniques eliminated the noise. Finally I climbed in the back & when I closed the rear passenger side door, there were a lot of metallic rumbling noise coming from inside the door around the opening handle. The noise is also audible from the outsode when closing the door shut, but not so much as on the inside. Guess i have to bring it in to have the assembly behind the latch tightened.
Hopefully that solves the mysterious rear rattle for me that was really audible at times.

Hope this helps someone if you're having rear noise issues. Try closing the rear doors. I found the noise there for now.

Someone left their beer can inside the door before they put the trim on......

I'm going to have to check this on my car tomorrow though it didn't sound like it was on either side on mine I think. Thanks for the info in either case!
