Default rear window latch raddle

Anyone have any ways to fix the rear window latch from raddling? Would a deadener be worth the cost to do the whole rear panel?

mine rattles also, i usually push it all the way to the left so the latch meets the catch. still rattles but not as bad. i guess its in my head also cause the girlfriend never hears it. drives me insane though!

im the same way... doesnt bother anyone else in my car but pisses me off i gotta get my rear window seal fixed and doing some rear panel work so might buy some dynamat and see if that helps
anyone use any alternatives to actual sound deadening (like dynamat, fat mat, 2nd skin...)

Mine rattles due to the fact that i usually have my sound at volume 19 and my sub pumping out power all the time lol....the sub actually rattled the grill off the box
