I was riding in some chopped up cane fields this weekend and noticed how loud the rattle from my doors is. I dont think we looked at this issue yet. Anybody have any ideas. It seems that they leave the hook and latch with a little play for ease of use.

I think alot of people think you have to SLAM the doors, you dont, just hold the outside handle open, close the door all the way, hold it shut, release outside handle, and it latches fine. No need to slam it.

I am not having any issues closing the door and I dont slam it shut. I am talking about when the door is fully closed it has some play in the latch mechanism. I can grab the door and shake it about a 1/4" back and forth. Is mine the only one that does this?

Have you played around with it much at all? It seems like one of those things where you need to figure out where the rattle is coming from and then you can fix it. I would assume its something to do with the latch or the hinges. Either something is loose or something things just aren't fitting together right. Either way, you need to figure out where the rattle is coming from / what is causing it.

Mine doesn't have any play at all in the latches when shut (apart from just the normal tiny bit) and definately don't rattle. Yours sound like they need adjusting as mentioned. Half the time I don't even shut mine, it gives you a nasty surprise though when you go around a sharp bend and the door flies open when your knee falls against it!

I tightened them as much as I could. It helped alot but still has a little rattle. I can live with it.
