    Does anyone else have problems witht here door locks rattling while they hit bumps and when your base makes them rattle. Mine have alot of play. I was thinking about finding something to hold them in place. Anyone done this?

    Are you writing about the rectangular button that sticks up when unlocked and that you push down to lock the door?

    If so, mine also knocks when I drive. Haven't gotten around to fixing it yet, but plan to put a wide rubber band around it as a start...

    Are you sure it's the locks themselves?

    You have a 10mm bolt near the actual door locking clasp, and it sometimes comes loose and causes tons of rattle in the window (it secures the window sliding groove)
