Front door panel rattling

Just got a 2012 Jeep Compass with the Boston audio system in it. The system sounds great but my front door panels rattle just enough to make it really annoying. When I hold them it stops. Any suggestions on what to add or tighten up to make it stop?

Much appreciated

For me it turned out to be more of the lock pull at the top of the door. I put a tiny bit of electrical tape around it and 99% of my rattling is solved. Hope that helps!

When you put the tape on did you put it on the outside, or open the door panel up and tape around the unit?

I just wrapped the plastic piece with everything together. When the door auto lock the piece drops down and that's what rattles the most against the door panel. Long as your interior is black no one will ever see it. Hope that's helpful! It was a much easier fix than taking everything apart!

I had the same problem with my '08 Compass. The silver lock button that was vibrating and making the noise is screwed on to a threaded shaft. I went to the auto parts store and found some buttons that had a more rubbery finish, and replaced the stock buttons. No more noise.
