Rattles when closing front doors?!
 
Ok.. so as if the pano sunroof rattle wasn't enough, when i close my two front doors I get a lot of rattle from the car. Sounds like its coming from the window area or maybe the sunroof.

Anyone else? Is this how it is due to the sunroof? Try it by closing your driver door with normal force and see if you get rattles too.

Thanks,

CT

I had some rattles on the passenger side when closing either door, however mine were coming from the lower portion of the door. Turned out, it was a plastic debris shield underneath the passenger side just about in the middle of both doors.

There's a slight rattle in my door, it just doesn't sound as solid as it should, but I've gotten used to it now.

Thank for the replies... I guess I could live with it but my issue is if it gets worse over time AND when you buy a 40K car that has 900 miles on it I shouldnt have to deal with stuff like this...

Mine did this as well, door panels would also creak when coming to a stop.

Mine sounds like a vault when closing.

I had a rattle in passenger front door that was coming from the lock mechanism. An easy way to check is to see if the crome push rod used to lock the door will turn when unlocked. The problem was corrected by the dealer.

I had the dealer put some foam inside the door panel and rattle is gone. I've owned many new cars and never used this much foam pad like stuff in new car before. Very frustrating...
