: : Earlier someone posted some instructions on how to adjust the door to make it close tighter.
: : Please post again with more details.

: : thanks,

: Yeah, they'll rattle. I took my 97 to the dealer, since it's under warranty. They adjusted the latch to tighten it up a bit. Worked fine.
: Search the archives here, on rattle, latch, etc.

To adjust the latch, all you do is to get out your torx wrenches, and loosen the torx scres holding the black metal latch inside the door jam...You'll find you can move it out and in...Just try at various positions, and retighten..It really cant be much simpler.
