Car doors rattle

Can anyone give some tips on how to tighten up either door? They both rattle when driving on rough roads.

The noise is not the door panels, speakers or switches. The noise is the entire door. The sound is coming from the lock end of the door; not the hinge end.

Any tip will be much appreciated.

There is a c-clip on the lock. You can check that out. Have same issue with mine. Difference is it's missing. Just don't have the time to drive 40 miles to pick up the part. lol

Weather striping might help. I swapped mine out but not gotta go after the regulator etc. weathering, age, all plays a role on making the rattle.

The thing I remember most is that my car (97vert) came equipped with soft springs and a set of dot rust that dampen but no make my ride with lousy slalom numbers. So I stiffened it up and now I shall
Me everything lose. I cope by dampening everything that rattles.

I know this is an old post.

The door is not rattling.

The windows rattle when they are rolled partly down.

So, the updated question is: would new weatherstripping tighten up the windows? That weatherstripping is fairly pricey.
