on Sunday I fixed the annoying rattle that was coming out of the drivers door,
well coming from behind the doorcard...




once the door card was off it was easy to spot the problem.........................
a bolt had come out of the window regulator mechanisum



lucky the bolt had got stuck between the door & the vapour seal..



so it was a easy fix to put the bolt back in & tighten up the other 3 bolts too, took all of 2 minutes..



while the doorcard was off I took the chance to spray WD40 on all of the regulator mechanisum ;)
total time for job was about 15 minutes & tools used were 1x 10mm socket, 1x 1/4" drive ratchet, 1x mini maglite, 1x trim removal tool, 2x torque screwdrivers T25 & T30

Hi Paul,

I did this exact same job about three weeks ago and I am now about to do it again but this time with the addition of locking washers as the rattle returned again after a several slams of the door and driving over a few of our wonderful Wiltshire roads, THUMP, BANG, CRASH. I think this is a design fault the weight of the window regulator is only held by those little 10mm bolts.
