Popping Sound

I used the tape on the door latch and it has stopped the popping sound, Thanks for the information it works.

kabory just put enough so the door stills closes properly, too much and you will have to slam door shut. I think I put 3 or 4 wraps around.

lowdutch Our 2012 Unlimited Sahara makes popping noises when we first drive it, coming from various places, at first I thought something was loose, now I'm thinking the rubber between hardtop and various body parts is just shifting due to temp differences, sort of like a "plate shift" earthquake. I don't hear a rattle, as much as just a few pops, a few minutes apart.

kabory I recently purchased a 2009 Unlimited Sahara and had the same problem. I read somewhere that the sound comes from the door latch. I put some electrical tape around latch catch and problem solved.

Popping sound coming from JK B-pillar. Help?

Hey all. About 3 months ago I picked up a 2011 Wrangler unlimited JK after many years being "away" from the Jeep family.

Since getting my Jeep (and BEFORE lifting it 4") I continue to hear a popping or rattling sound coming from my B pillar - inside where the seatbelt mechanism lives. Has anyone else experienced this sound or know what I'm referring to? I've pretty much dis-assembled the whole seatbelt/B-pillar coverings and still can't find the source. Arrggggh.
