The door latch keeper probably needs adjusting.
This is in the door frame and it's the mechansim which holds the door when it's closed. There should be screws you can loosen to move the keeper in so the door latches more tightly.

Loosen screws, move the keeper in, tighten screws, try the door. If still not tight, move keeper in more.

You will have to adjust the door lock catch which is fitted on the body , loosen the two screws and push it a little inwards , close the door after adjsuting and see if it rattles , if so repeat the adjustment.
Please also check the door hinghes of they are ok! Probabely it may have some play if so thn you will have to replace them.
Hope this helps!

Rattling, clanking sound over small bumps on drivers side front tires area when driving


Check the droplinks for the anti roll bar... some are like ball joints, and they can seize, which causes the symptoms you are getting.

Every time I hit a bump hard a rattling noise comes from my left tire. Could that be my lower ball joints or shocks.


Could be anything.
I suggest you open the bonnet and get someone to help you rock the left hand front of the car so you can listen to where the noise is coming from.

Front end rattle when i hit a bump in a 97 tahoe


If it sounds tinny, crawl under when it is cold and tap the outer heat shields on the catalytic converter first, top and bottom, and then the heat sheld attached to the body. if any of them make noise, that is the source. These are the two likely issues.

If they are snug and quiet, look for anything hanging down. Inner fender liners come loose all the time and may the source as well.

The dash light indicates I have a door opened and a chime dings when I hit a bump. All the doors are closed.


Check the 2 contacts on the passenger sliding door. If the door is out of adjustment they will have poor contact and a bump will jar it and turn on the light and chime. Make sure the side door closes securely.

Problems with the car


Lots of rattles, which is surprising! Doors flexed over bumps, steering wheel creaks on low speed car park type turns, door trim gives off low amplitude noises from time to time. Paintwork defects on delivery - rear bumper dimpled, dirt in clear coat. Paint defects in use - one of the front fog light cut outs has flaking paint and the hatch is streaked after washer fluid ran down it from use several times. Driver's dash vent came adrift at one corner.
