Default Door rattle fix!!!!

Well today I decided that with the break in the weather it was time to fix that annoying a$$ rattle in my passenger door. I was just about to get started and went to remove the plate that covers the torx screw behind the door handle, and it turns out that thats where the rattle was coming from. Somehow one of the tabs that hold it in place broke and it was able to rattle. I fixed it by putting a piece of 3m double stick tape behind it, this way it holds it in place and absorbs any vibrations. Just found it funny how I was all ready to take the door panel off and find the rattle and before I even started I found the stupid little rattle lol

My flipping rattles are coming from the little panels (on each door) that hold the window switches. Buzz and rattle like crazy with the Shaker 500 subs... Going to have to tear the doors apart and use some dynamat.

I was just getting ready to tear the doors apart but found this just as I started. It bugged me more than anything and honestly made me hate driving the car without the radio loud lol.

I have a rattle in the same spot as grabber. It's quite annoying and sucks that you already have them with a '10

Both should probably just pop the window switch housing section out, check the plastic molex housing that snaps into place for the window switches, that was my rattle issue for both. The tabs holding it in place are not tight from the factory.

I just got done redoing every LED in my car, along with another major project; this was among many of the annoying rattles and smaller issues that Ive been able to solve now that Ive dismantled damn near everything in the car once now.

Bit of stacked 3m double-sided in there should fix you right up once you take a look. I am now rattle free..

I am sure it was a pain in the ***, but trust me a rattle free ride is the way to go. Even with the exhaust and music on I still heard the rattle, and got me soo angry everytime I heard it.

I'm going to have to do both of these when it gets warmer. Both the rattle and the puke green factory lights drive me nuts
