Hello everyone, a little preface on to my problem that I've had since day one. I have a 2013 JKUR10A and when I would remove my hard top and there was no longer anything pressing against the top of the driver side rear door, every time I went over a bump it would rattle and drive me CRAZY. I know there are many threads dedicated to the infamous door rattle and I am aware that there is a TSB out there for it which call for the technician to just simply "apply grease to the striker plate and cycle the door" which I assure you I had no luck for me. I know others have had varying degrees of luck with the electrical tape fix as well but it is a temporary fix. I just wanted to post up my seemingly more long term fix that I think looks good as well. All you need is a tube of plasti-dip (not the aerosol)

here are the steps:
  • Remove latch plate and backing plate with Torx bit
  • Clean latching bar with soap and water and dry it
  • Dip just the hoop into the tube of plasti-dip (you may need to hold the tube at an angle to get adequate coverage) and be sure not to coat the flat plate
  • Let dry for at least 4 hours
  • Reinstall backing plate and latch plate

It will just wear off, just use electrical tape, much easier to re apply.

Use hockey tape. (As in the tape we put on the blade of the stick). You can get it in black and it lasts for ages. Over a year per application.

My passenger door is starting to rattle over bump. I thought it was because of the hinge pins. Is this not the case?

This should be very funny to any hockey players on here !

hockey tape is the fix all for everything that has been broken since you were a kid !

last week, my son "dad my toenail is broken and falling off"... me "put some hockey tape on it"

so, although you have a great idea here. i am willing to bet mst fixes that require tape around your place are fixed byt either white or black hockey tape !
