I know this is a common problem, but I might have a new twist to it. Most of the rattles I get have always been around the door handle assembly. As I was trying to figure out new ways to find and stop the rattles, I jiggled the door lock assembly and voila - it's very loose, and makes a lot of noise!!. I can bounce the door look around pretty good and it's the same sound I get going over bumps. Anyone know of a way to 'tighten' up the door lock slide? I was surprised it had so much play in it.

There's a saying that a Mercury is just a Ford with lock-washers. Seems Honda may have been short on lock washers on MANY ODYs. I have to turn the music up REAL LOUD to drown out all of the rattles.

No rattles noted on my 02. I'll keep you posted if I start hearing any.

Had our '02 EX since October. We have a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old, so it's rarely quiet in the van. If I drive by myself, I have noticed much rattling in the doors. I'd like to ride back there sometime to listen more closely to where it originates. I hate to take it to the dealer and have it adjusted. The doors seat fine, so I'd kinda like to leave well-enough alone. It sure sounds like hardware that isn't tight or soundproofed.

It doesn't make sense but the the rattle is probably coming from the gaskets. Coat them with silicone. Get a can and spray it onto a rag then coat all the gaskets around the doors. I got my van 0n 9/23. I've had to coat the gaskets 3 times. It really does work.

I've had my van about 1 1/2 months and have just begun to notice door rattling, is this a trait that develops over time or amount of use? Does anyone not use their doors and still have this issue?

The sound I hear I believe is coming from the gaskets, too. I only hear it when it is warm outside (above 45°F). I have tried the silicone thing with no luck. I will try recoating them as chrisj2641 suggests.

p.s. I got my '02 on 9/27.
