I think the sound is actually coming from the plastic vent look piece that is right behind the sliding glass window. Whenever I close the driver side door, something inside the plastic piece rattles. The weird thing is, even if I place pressure on the exterior of the plastic piece when the door is being closed, it still makes that sound. Tips/suggestions?
It may be this.
There is a piece inside the gasket that may have slid down and preventing the tail gate from closing properly.
I just discovered it few months ago. The gasket around the door is hollow. Except that there is a piece inside about 5" that suppose to be where the upper tail gate is closing to cushion the the upper door. It seats ABOVE the lower tail gate.
It is held by glue and with age it may have loosen up. The 5" thick material then slide down inside the gasket. It makes the lower gate not close all the way and the upper tail gate not closing correctly. Once I discovered it, I worked that 5" piece back into position and it is held by a pin right now. Mine did it only on one side.
I hope what I wrote makes sense.... I can't really take a picture of what inside the gasket, you need to feel it.
