Hearing a rattle in the passenger side door which doesn't always happen. Normal bumps, nothing. But certain types of bumps cause a rattle.
Anyone else having this issue? Taking it to the dealer but wanted to start a thread to see if anyone else has been dealing with the same thing.

I don't have it with my full steel doors, but my driver side Bestop tube door has a small amount of play in the latch, causing a rattle over bumps which I solved by adding one layer of electrical tape on the loop that the latch comes in contact with.

Thanks Jeff. I'll try that out to see if that's where it's coming from.

I used the electrical tape fix too...I did it on all 4 doors of the JKU, worked perfectly. You may need a few wraps with the tape or just on may do it.

A lot of people have this issue, myself included. Electrical tape works wonders :) Some people have corrected it by adjusting the striker.

Had a rattle. Found those knobs on the roll cage were loose. Tightened them up and rattles stopped.

I had the same exact rattle. Right in (below?) the passenger side door. I took it into the dealer and they fixed it in pretty short order. I actually was taking it in to have them fix the astrostart - about 10% of the time it would set off my "panic" button - and had them look at the door at the same time. Both problems fixed within a couple hours.

Had the same rattle on my passenger door. Found a thread on another forum that said to adjust the U striker 1/8" inward toward the seat. I loosened the two striker bolts, made the adjustment and whalla! The rattle is gone!
