Anyone have a clue if the play in the doors can be adjusted out? I moved the rubber bump stop out as far as I could but the rattling of the passenger door is driving me nuts. We were out clearing trails today and the rattling actually gave me a headache after a while. It moves at least 1/2".

I added some self adhesive weather stripping to the point where the rubber stop touches the passenger door. That remidied mine

This is what I did Rob. Self adhesive foam weather stripping. You can adjust your rubber stopper back in a little bit as needed.



If you don't have any laying around, it's around $5 for 10ft of it at a hardware store, think Amazon carries it too. I've used it for years to get rattles out of off road vehicles with good results.

My right door was also rattling & I couldn't unscrew the rubber snubber anymore, I noticed the lower part where the rubber screws in was bent in some so I look it off & bent it back straight & reinstalled it & adjusted it. It now shuts tight & has some adjustment left.

You might want to check to be sure that the two stage latch is actually catching in the second completly closed pisition. If the rubber stobber is all the way out, the latch might only be catching in the first position. This will definetly make for a loose rattling door. Perhaps try screwing the stopper all the way in first as to allow and be sure the latch is completely closeing in the second position. Then adjust the stopper out a little at a time until the play is gone. This worked for me.

Minnesota Pioneer that is a great point. Sometimes I forget this is a Honda. Where others use a single striker for their doors Honda has engineered it just a little bit better and uses a double striker system.

Ok I hate rattles. At certain speeds or motor rpm my pass side door would rattle so I just run out the door stop no change so I looked further and here is what I found the door latch is not rattling from a in or out motion but a up and down motion The fix adjust your rubber door stop in so it does not touch the door shut the door and slightly push down or pull up on your door while it's closed you will find that it hits the latch sooner one way or the other. I loosened the two hex head bolts one the door striker the part on the body not the door It has a elongated bolt hole slightly tighten your bolts so they just hold the striker in place and adjust it up or down till it is in the middle of your latch on the door by slightly pushing down or pulling up on your door with it closed until the free space is about the same tighten your bolts up adjust your rubber door stops to where they just touch BAM no noise for me

My drivers door was also loose and rattling.

Upon investigation I noticed that the bolt in the latch assembly itself had fallen out (this bolt doesn't hold the latch to the door it goes through the two stage latch hooks) . Fortunately the bolt was still caught in the latch cover so I just replaced it and everything is now fine.

If you have a door rattle you may want to first check to see if yours has also fallen out.

The bracket that holds the rubber snubber can be easily bent outward 1/2" giving your adjustment back. I had my unit apart and noticed how the bracket was made and just grabbed it with a crescent wrench and torqued it out a little. Problem solved.
