Back Liftgate/ Hatch Glass Rattle
I swear my back liftgate/ hatch glass is rattling. Most of the time it's on decent bumps in the road. I don't know if I can adjust the glass catch to tighten it up or if the weatherstrip has lost its springiness. Anybody have input?

Re: Back Liftgate/ Hatch Glass Rattle
Found a solution on the Jeeps Unlimited Forum. The glass was touching the frame along the bottom when closed, evident from the paint rub marks. There are 2 T25 Torx screws on the inside of the glass towards the top. Loosened them, moved the glass up, & retightened. Took most of the rattle out. It was still barely hitting on the passenger side. I removed the rubber stop & spaced it out by adding a washer underneath it.
