Default Door Rattles

Has anyone had problems with rattles in the front doors? Is this a common problem?

Thanks

Nope no rattles here? do you have something in the door pockets or aftermarket speakers? Does the rattle seam louder with the window up or down?

Car is only eight months old. Nothing in the door pockets. When I hit the door, it sounds like something loose inside right behind the handle. I hate taking it to the dealer for rattles becasue they never have the patience to find it! How hard is it to take the door panel off

While you got the door panel off, get some Dynamat and slap some on there. It will help deaden up the door and will quiet down the road noise.

I can't think of anything that could be in there either. Taken my door panels off more than once.

Cutlass 442- Love those cars. My first car was an 86 442.
