Door Rattle & Wiper Fluid Questions...

Hey, two issues that I am lookin for help on.

1. I have an extended cab, ie: with the half-rear door. I've got all sorts of small leakage problems, and problems with it not sitting completely tight. However my most annoying problem is a persistent deep rattling within the rear door. I have figured out that is the black hook&plate that the front door latches to. It moves around maybe half an inch, but otherwise seems secure. Before I go tearing apart my door, anyone ever deal with this? What is the best way to clear it up? Also, any quick helpful hints as to the cleanest way to take apart the rear door?


2. The washer fluid pisses with the intensity of a 90 year old man. I have owned many trucks, but have somehow never had this problem. This an easy fix? (The nozzles are cleaned, it seems to just be a pressure issue.)

Thanks

Subscribing. My back drivers side back door does the same thing but it's more like a rubbing sound. I've tried to tighten the latches and the panels but to no avail

There is a mod for weatherstripping somewhere here on the forums. It adds tubing to the inside of your weatherstripping to make the doors seal a bit tighter. Maybe that would stop the rattling/rubbing noises???

Sound like a pump or something restricting the line on the washer fluid.

appreciate the thoughts

but the rattling is within the door.... not between the door & body.
