    I can tell that youre really pissed with the rattles.Hate them myself.make sure you use plastic spatulas to remove any trim to avoid marking them.In the past ive used those polystyrene packing beads to tighten up the gaps between door card and door etc

    Right had a good go at it today with some dynamat ans some double sided dense sticky foam tape

    It is a lot better but not perfect
    I think the speaker is not the best
    also wax oiled all the door lock and central locking as the plastic rattled
    the elec window motor was rattling on the door so I loosened it and put some dynamat behind it
    and in the door and on all the flat metal bits

    Will post pics when I know how from my iPad

    My window switch rattles, so I jammed a bit of plastic business card in it to stop it.....
