BTW, i found the cause for the passenger door rattle and its an easy fix....if u want to spend about 30 mins, its easy...basically remove the door panel by taking off all the bolts first but dont pull it too far away from the door, as there are wires attached...if u have the rattle that sounds like somthing is loose inside the door panel, its because it is...there are wires that have these plastic clips on them...the clips go into a little hole...they are supposed to be plugged into those holes but its not very tight...so basically if u have the rattle, its because the clips came out of those holes and are vibrating over rough roads..thats the sound u hear...so basically u just plug those clips back in and tape it up with electrical tape...put the panel back on and ur set...door rattle gone

*FWIW, its not the glove compartment, or passenger dash..i thought it was too and acoustics when u are alone in the car make it sound that way...but i had my wife sit in the car and listen while i drove and she put her ear right up to the door and voila...for the longest time i thought it was the dash or trim / passenger AC vent..but nope..its the door..the way sounds bounce off things in the car make it feel like its the dash area
