Door rattles - tracing and rectification
Bodywork and fittings / Door rattles - tracing and rectification

1 Check first that each door is not loose at its hinges and that the latch is holding the door firmly in position.

2 Check that each door lines up with the aperture in the vehicle body. Adjust the door if out of alignment.

3 If a latch is holding its door in the correct position but the latch still rattles, then the lock mechanism is worn and should be renewed.

4 Other rattles from the door could be caused by loose glass channels or wear in the window operating or interior lock mechanisms.
