#10 of 15 Mazda Trribute Read Hatch/Window Rattle
Jan 18, 2010 (10:46 am)
Did anybody ever respond to scooter40. I have tried silicone spray, and tightening up the window lock, but the rattle comes back after about a week. I think this is a design problem.
Please let me know if there is a kit to repair it. Thanks

I solved my rattle/squeaking problem by wrapping several layers of PVC electrical tape around the post (striker) the tailgate latches onto. The same tape has been in place for several years. It certainly is a cheap/quick try if that is the noise source.

I recently purchased a 2001 Tribute in excellent condition except for an excruciating rattle coming from the drivers door when the car was going up or down hills or going over a bump. After many attempts to remedy the problem, I tried your tape solution with instant success. The rattle had been so loud that it masked the fact that all the doors were doing it so I have taped up the lot. I am now enjoying smooth rattle free driving. Many thanks for your suggestion.
