I am hearing a thump inside of my driver side door when I close it. This is a new sound. I checked the door pocket and nothing was in there. Sounds like something is loose in there. If I shake the door I can recreate it. Anyone run across this? I'd rather not take it to the dealer if I don't have too.
Thanks!

I don't have any issues with any of the doors, so IMHO I would just take it to the dealer. Worst case the dealer says you have a screw loose, best case the dealer finds the loose screw in the door. :grin2:

It's such a PITA to go to the dealer. I may try to pop off one of these panels and look for myself.
Honestly, that is exactly what I would do. The last time I had a dealer remove an interior panel, they caused more noises than they fixed...

Ended up taking it back off myself, found 3 busted clips.

What TH owner doesn’t have a screw loose? 🤪 pretty sure that’s the only reason these things exist.

I have a door rattle too 😩 but the closest dealership is beyond bad, so it’s an hour trip each way to a decent one. I’m saving up to get a bunch of stuff done at once.

This may be my weekend mission. How hard was it to take off the panel? Any tips?
Its been a few years as it was on our 2012 SRT but it was very easy, just used a plastic tool to work around the outside to pop the clips, just be careful of the wired connections and the door lock.

Don't pull out too far with the panel at first, just enough to reach in and disconnect those items before moving on...

As said above, should be some tutorials or pictures out on the interwebs somewhere.

For the record, I took off the panel. Pretty good tips found online :) I did not take it all the way off as there appears to be a secondary cover. The noise is down in the bottom corner of the door and I was going to have to keep removing pieces to get to it. It's definitely a loose piece of something that fell down to the bottom of the door, and now resides as far to the bottom and back of the door as possible. Off to the dealer I go.....eventually

Yeah, I had also that problem, it should be the plastic or something is inside, I guess. You should visit a mechanic that will look inside the door. In general my opinion is that American cars are not very qualitatively made and cannot be used for long time such as European or Japanese. Guys, I have recently found this site 10 Best RV Door Lock Reviews 2020 – Newbie’s Buying Guide ... On this site you can find a really good reviews and guides about a lot of things from door locks to printers.
