Default Rattle in door!!!! Im going crazy!

Both my doors rattle, as if they are loose. Is there any way to tighten them... or it could be my locks cuz they are manual. I know that older trucks rattle and shake, but is there any way to fix this?

Take it apart. Bang on stuff. Isolate source. Eliminate it.

Mine did the same thing. Replace the door seals and problem will be solved.

Ear plugs or a good stereo will make all the rattles disappear.

I'm also having a rattle problem in my driver door that drives me nuts. I've found out it isn't in the door by standing outside with the door closed and shoving on it. Whenever I push in a certain spot it causes the door to make the rattle sound. I'm wondering if their is too much play, but I'm not really sure what part to replace to fix this. Anyway, you might try that just to make sure it's inside.
