Exclamation Loose/vibrating Door Handles Annoying

Just a quick question I figured an auto aficionado here can answer. My exterior door handles, particularly my drivers side handle vibrates whenever my bass hits a certain tone, when I hold the handle down from outside it doesn't make the noise, so I'm confident its that.

Long story short, I was wondering what I could do to fix this vibrating. I tried the black foam tape but thes not the piece next to the keyhole that vibs, its the other side that you can't stick tape into. Not a big thing, but its annoying, specially when your trying to show off. I do have the bumper to bumper, should I just take it somewhere and have them tighten some screws inside?

Good morning Blake2012 and welcome to the forum!
As your vehicle is a 2006, you would be well outside of the original GM bumper to bumper by time (good for 3 years from the in-service date of the vehicle). Are you talking about a service contract or extended warranty that you've purchased? I would definitely recommend checking what is covered before taking it in (if it's a GMPP I'd be happy to get you more information).

Have you checked into Chevrolet Owner Center? You can maintain service history, check on warranty or recall information, and more. Visit my.chevrolet.com!

Not that big of a job to take apart if you have a heated area. Remove door panel and 3 screws are right there. Once off you might discover the real reason why it's rattling. Might be one of the rod retainer clips or maybe your door handle is wore out and you need a new one.

Just take your time and with the right tools it is simple.

Which remote do you have 22733524,22733523 or 15252034?

No clue, but even the button on the inside fails to open it sometimes and then later it will work. Eh, little things, but still a great car
