Sliding door rattle

Sliding door rattle

Postby beech2000 [OP] » April 28th 2015, 3:26am

I can make the slide door rattling go away by applying finger pressure on upper slide finger. Thoughts?

Roller is wearing and got play. Isn't holding it tight to the weatherstipping anymore.
If you figure out anything easy let me know.

Bend the arm holding the upper bearing. Just a slight bend towards the door should put more tension at the end of the travel.
Mine had far worse problems as it has a cargo divider and the roller arm would it it as the door closed. The arm had broken off at some point and welded back on; the bearing is broke as well.

Im thinking about shaping a piece of white plastic (HDPE) cutting board and fitting it as a glide bearing. That and a newer weather striping form the JY.

Since I added a window in mine I notice the upper rear corner has a vibration. There ain't nothing back there to pull it in tighter. I suppose I need thicker weatherstrip.

Adjust the door just like the front doors CC. Put a 2x4 in the partly open door down at the strike / latch area, both hands on the top corner and push. Tweak the door, in your position you may need a step ladder.
