Rattle at Tire Carrier - fix?

I am loving my 10A however it just today began to have a terrible rattle from the rear tail gate over bumps. I have locked it down to being the rear tire carrier as when you push on the lower part of the spare you can duplicate the noise. Has anyone else run into this and have any suggestions as to a quick fix? With only 700 miles on it I hate to all ready have to leave it with a dealer to be serviced.

Black guide piece? I think I know what you are talking about, but could you be more specific? Thanks for your help!

When u open the rear door just below the locking mechanism it's the black guide held by 2 screws. Took me a month to figure what to do. Put to strips of tape on inside to make it tighter. Did try to unscrew it and adjust it but made no difference.

Same problem here too! I'd love to know if there's a better fix than duck taping my Jeep together, but I guess if it works...

Any updates from your oil change. My dealer suggested removing rear gate and realigning realigning it, but i think the guide should be insulated so this isnt going to help? Hence why adding the tape works. :-(

Dealer told me it's a jeep "thing". They are ordering me a new guide piece for rear door. They said the door can get out of alignment very easy. Will let u know when it is changed.

All I can say is it has been a pleasure not to hear the rattling anymore. Amazing that a 1 inch piece of tape has reduced my blood pressure.

Don't worry... it will begin rattling from somewhere else soon. I've given up diagnosing and fixing rattles. It's a Jeep thing.

I had the same problem. I adjusted both the guide that people are putting tape on and also the piece on the door that slides into it. I adjusted the part on the rear door so the leading part that slides into the female part was relatively square. Tightened that down. Loosened up the female part and sliding it as far to the rear if the Jeep as possible. Carefully slowly shut the door. Opened the door and tightened down the female part. Now it is seated perfectly. It worked for me. Hope this helps.
