rattling door handles
they rattle when the bass hits in my car. I fixed them with the TSB, but it came back.

will a little dynamat behind the speaker (stock) make this go away?

It's VERY irritating *buzzzz*

dynamat probably isn't gonna help that...Whats exactly rattling? The outside or side handle?

My door handles rattle badly too. I thought I saw a write-up on this site for tightening them?

the actually door handle itself is loose. I tightned them and put some felt on it, but it just came back.

Very annoying...and it only happens when the bass in the car plays.

are you sure it's your doorhandle? maybe a blown speaker? i blew one of mine out on my drivers side door...i hate the rattling sound. now, i have to listen to music with bass at -3 just because that one speaker screws everything else up.

I've been outside the car and felt it rattle, also you can rattle it with your hand.

it's also doing it on both sides, one side worse than the other.

I've had the entire door apart, down to the two skins, and it's got to be the handle. If the speakers were blown, would it sound like shit?

It sounds clear as day confused

Jameson as long as you have the door apart you migh twant to checkthe tweeder bracket. Something was rattling in my door and it turned out to be the bracket.
I've found that instead of using felt fom pads work a lot better. You can get them in the craft section of places like Wal-Mart. $0.33 for a 8x11 sheet.


I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

Its the handles, I can hear it when I'm cleaning my car. Put as much as a finger on the handle and push and the vibrations go away.

you could always try dynamat, it won't hurt and will decrease road noise. as far as the handle rattle, it seems as if even after you tighten it the screws loosen eventually anyway, so any type of felt or foam will only dampen the eventual rattle but fail to solve the problem. You need to find a way to keep the screws from loosening. Get some Loctite, that should do it...
