Question about 2002 Honda Odyssey
The sliding door has upper roller, lower roller, and center roller mechanisms. These rollers can become damaged and rattle in their respective tracks. The upper and lower rollers are easy to inspect, as they are at the front of the door (top and bottom) and in plain sight. But the center roller cannot be inspected until the center rail cover (an exterior narrow long panel) is removed.
To remove the center rail cover, first remove the tail light assembly on the affected side. (That procedure can be found by doing a fixya search for "2002 Honda Odyssey brake light replacement"). Now open the sliding door. Notice at the front of the rail cover there is a small bolt. Remove this bolt. Go to the back of the center rail cover and remove the two screws (only accessible when tail light assembly is removed). Then slide the center rail cover rearward to remove it. Now you will be able to inspect the center roller mechanism and door cables. Look carefully for damaged rollers which will let the door wobble in the center track and rattle.
How do these rollers get damaged? When kids climb onto the doors and "slide along". The door guide rollers and latches were not designed to carry much more weight than the door itself.
