Door Panel Rattles
Does anyone have any advice or tips on getting rid of the door rattles? It is mostly on the drivers side front and rear doors (because I open and close them more than the others). I miss the old solid sound of the car door closing, now it is a buzzing sound every time....ughh. From what I can tell it is mostly coming from where the little post pops up when you unlock the doors. Any help would be great! Thanks!

I asked the mechanic at my dealer as mine are rattling as well as moving a little bit when you pull on the inner door handle. He checked some other Jeep's and they did the same thing, said he could exchange them but they would just do it again, I didn't bother.

Mine too! Definitely sub standard. Dealer fixed rattle once as it was making a loud knocking sound when closing the door, but now the othe one is starting.

Only solution is to re-engineer the thing yourself.

Should have bought European (me)!

WK2's build quality is very subpar considering its excellent frame, sus, design. When you pull inner door panel, you can definately feel the looseness from door frame. My dealer had to put extra noise deadening material to make it quiet. But i still hear rattles from here and there from time to time.

Chrysler, please do something about build quality...
