Default Door noise

Just became a proud owner of a 2002 Edge 4x4, 4.0, 5 speed, 4 door. Love the truck so far but whenever I go over a bump or on a dirt road it sounds like the rear doors are rattling? i have ensured they are shut good. wondering if this is a common thing for the rangers or not. thanks ahead of time.

Do you have aftermarket speakers? Whenever you take the rear panel off of the back doors (EG: to install aftarmarket speakers) it's a PITA to get every single tab back in place and if not done correctly it will cause the rattling.

I left the stock speaker harness dangling when I first did my door speakers (also rewired) and that made a noise for a few months until I took them apart and zippy tied the harness end down. Noise went away.

If there are new speakers back there and the door panel is not on all the way.

Take the door panel off, and then pull all the push pins out of the door.

Then install the push pins into the panel, and then start at the top pushing the panel onto the door.

Wasn't there a thread here with some people complaining about problems getting their rear doors to shut properly?

+1. What a nightmare. I'm having flashbacks to when I did my rear door speakers. All my push pins are back in but the panels still rattle. Only from the bass though, not going over bumps.

cool deal guys, i will have to check it out, the passenger side kick panel fell off last night for that same reason, was not clipped, so it probably does have some speakers. i was thinking he probably pulled the wires and stuff back trough for a sub and did not get it snapped down good.

If you plan on wheeling your truck much, you might have to get used to squeaks and rattles.
