Rattle in drivers door.


Recommended Posts

2017 Yaris hybrid.    A rattle can be heard from the drivers door when going over a bumpy surface. Can someone help with instructions to remove the door card?

Thanks in advance.

One of the most difficult things to trace a rattle in any part of the car 😡. Without being on site virtually impossible, and the car is still under warranty so take it to Mr. Toyota, and someone at the dealership may help.

Sorry as you are non-uk warranty may have just expired. However the same thing applies, virtually impossible to detect from afar. One thing I will say is ensure all storage facilities in the car are completely empty when testing for the rattle.

Before you attempt to remove the door card it’s a good idea to have car trim removal kit https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07NQ843LP/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_7GVEZJEPQ2AYZAZ5E7PV?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

then look for bolts usually covered with plastic trim and located in or near the door handle and opening leaver , undo these and then insert these plastic tools between door frame and the cars , start from bottom towards top, once the card is off the door keep it close as you will need to disconnect the cable for electric windows and lock mechanism metal bar. There should be a clear plastic cover glued to the door, heat with hair dryer or heat gun and carefully remove so you can use again after your check , this works as dust and sound proof. When reattach the card make sure the clips are at exact location on the card and start from top to bottom. 👍
Good luck

Thank you for your replies.  My car is booked in to the garage next month for it's 4 year service and MOT, I'll get them to check the 'rattle' then.
