Got to admit that there are very few rattles in my car apart from the feckin door pins! :shame:

Jeasus - they make some noise! They are fine in the locked position but in the open position... :shake

Is there anyway to tighten these up?

prise the reg tag out with a small screwdriver, take the pin off, put some silicone sealat on the rod / in the door pin.
Assmble, wipe away excess.

If that doesnt work, take off the plastic bit and bend the rod slightly so when the plastic is back on it will push hard against the side of the hole

I have the same problem, but I don't think the pin is buzzing because it's not sitting firmly on the rod thingy, but because it's hitting the doorcard :think

Take a close look at a door pin, you will see its loosly constructed from 3 plastic mouldings which all just clip together to form the pin/inner thread. Its this combination of construction which results in the vibrating.
