Annoying rattle inside drivers door or seatbelt pillar

Postby peter0991 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 7:32 pm

Hey guys, i did some searching on this forum and other forums (mainly lexus forums) and did not manage to find a clear answer :cry: .
When driving on a motorway or even in town, some rattling sound is coming from the inside of the driver side door. I am wondering if any of you guys have come across the same problem, and if you did then what did you do to sort it?
I am very against the option of turning the music up and ignoring the sound :D .
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have the same thing, had the door apart on Sunday and since then its been a bit better.

I found some bits of metal inside the door skin which I removed.

Also, the doorcard is held on with plastic clips mainly and if they are not secure on both the doorcard and the door, they will rattle. I had two on that side that were in the door but not secured to the doorcard itself.

I've not had the pillar off yet but since I did that, I've not noticed it at all so am waiting to see.

But yeah, put a newbie post up mate...club etiquette

Ah thats good news, might take the door apart today as well. Sounds about right that you removed some bits of metal, because the rattle sounds almost metallic. Anyway i am going to have a crack at it today, hopefully without breaking any clips :D and see if that solves the problem.

P.S. the newbie post has been put up

I think i found the source of the rattle. Some bolt seems to have completely fallen out and was stuck between the plastic film and the door. Another one was pretty loose, so that was tightened up also.

Went for a little drive and it seems to have gone. Lets hope it stays that way :D
