I think there may be a thread here about that already. Seems to be an issue with our cars.

i dont know how to do it, but my guess you would have to take the door panelt off.

mine rattles alot when my music is loud, gets annoying
1 get a tinny piece of sound dampening material right on top of the screws
2 make sure the screws are not loose and pretty tight them all the way that gets rid of that

and the ones make the rattling noise are the ones of the car handle in the inside the one you use to pull the door to close it different thing tho

well mine is actually the outside door handle. i cna grab a hold of it and the rattling goes away.
remove your door panel and there is a nut inside of it it might be loose that's the only figured out myself but don't know how to take the whole thing out:notrust:

I believe you have to take the door panel off first. Then you will see two clamps holding the window in. Roll the window down like half way and then loosen them. You can now remove the window. With the window out you can now get to the nuts for the handle to take it off. This is how my body guy told me was the easiest way. You can probably get to it without removing the window but doing so makes it easier to get to.

I just use a 1/4" socket wrench and a tinny joint to make it flexible and get to the bolts and yeah the window gets completely in the way but once you have loosen it up can take it out with you hand... you need really small hands by the way:notrust:
