Default Re: How to fix rattling doors?

X2 on the WD40. Put a little in all the latches, my doors used to rattle and the door light would come on until I cleaned and lubed the latches. Problem fixed for me, no more hard door slams.

Check to see if the nylon bushing is gone from the striker. My 01 Ranger had that same rattle problem. New strikers will cure the problem but Ford does not give them away. Good luck.

My damn passenger door is making a rattleing noise too it's so annoying.. thinking it was a loose door as I was driving I had my wife pull the handle inward like closing the door to put more pressure onthe door being shut... still rattled from SOMEWHERE...

Anyone have pictures of things they have replaced or done... I'm trying to visualize everything said in the thread but this rattling is nuts... makes the truck feel cheap and falling apart..

I have an 01' single cab.
