Driver side door rattle/creak

Bought a 2014 Trailhawk a few months ago. From day one the driver side doors has had a bit of a rattle and sometimes if lean on it a creaking sound. I feel like the sound is coming more from the handle side, that's where i apply pressure to make the sound go away. Maybe adding some spacers could help?

Thanks!

Hi dsdooper,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership for further diagnosis I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page with your VIN and let me know.

14 trailhawk here with a rattle in the driver's door too. Mine sounds like something rattling around in the door. At first I thought it was crap stuck somewhere from my 1st off road adventure but no go. I just turn up the radio to drown it out.

Mine does something similar - also a 2014 TH that I bought used a few months ago. When I first hit the accelerator, one of the doors or something in it shifts a bit and I can hear a creaking noise from the back of the driver-front door (or possibly the front of the back door, can't exactly locate it).

I told the dealer about it the morning after I bought it and they said they would have a look - they thought maybe it was the door check (the dark-colored lever-bit that keeps the door from opening too far) - because it was creaky when you open the door. The sales department initially offered to replace it to see if that was the cause, but then they said they had to "clear it with their GM first (since it was out of B2B warranty)", and then they stopped calling me...even though the part is like $30. So I still drive with the creaking, and can't say for certain that is the cause - but the door check might be something to have your dealer look at.

On a semi-related side-note - anybody know of a good Jeep Dealer in SoCal - Coachella Valley-Inland Empire area? My 'svc 4wd' just came on, and I am really nervous to take it to the dealer that sold me my TH after the door-creaking thing where they pretty much brushed me off after my check cleared for the truck...
