    The driver door window on my 01 DC rattles pretty bad when closing the door unless it is all the way up or down. Any idea what I could do to snug it up again? Any small parts or would this require a whole new rail setup?

    there should be a little hex head bolt on the edge of the door that you can tighten (but not too tight because it will break) that will solve this issue

    ill try and get a pic tomorrow when its daylight

    that bolt holds the window track secure and can loosen over time...just tighten it down a bit and it should help

    Glad I found this discussion! I have a 16 Tacoma and my back passenger window is having the same issue. When the window is rolled down half way. I am able to rock the window side to side. When window is rolled all the way down you can hear the window banging around inside the door.
    Fingers cross this will be the fix for my truck.

    I just read this and since my driver's side front window is banging around inside the door. I thought I'd be able to just go out and tighten it. But it doesn't even have the 10mm hex head bolt at all! Should be able to go to a hardware store and replace it? But if you look closely at the picture the metal around it, is bent and looks like the bolt was ripped out

    My 16 doesn't have a bolt on the back passenger door. Hope this will be covered under my warranty.

    makes me wonder how long it was like that before finally falling out. But yeah, you should be able to hit up a hardware store for a bolt. Put some thread lock on it.

    If you look at the picture the metal is actually bent. Like the bolt got ripped out.
