Front door rattle
#1
Hello,

Just thought I'd quickly share a solution to a particular door rattle.

The last week or so, I was getting a loud and highly annoying rattle from inside the driver side front door.

Interestingly, the rattle would only evidence itself when the window was fully closed. Opening the window stopped the rattle. A little googling and looking on here suggested it may be something to do with the window regulator. Turned out this was right - and it's easy to fix.

All you need to do is:
  1. Prise off door handle trim with flat head screwdriver.
  2. Remove 2x torx screws under the trim
  3. Prise off cover over wing mirror motor connections
  4. Remove the three torx screws in the door trim
  5. Work your way round edge of door trim to prise outwards - releasing from plastic trim holders. This takes a bit of courage...
  6. Once door trim is off you'll see a white covering which is held on with adhesive.
  7. Near the speaker at the bottom, gently pull covering away to reveal bolt that holds regulator (I think there are four such bolts). Tighten and repeat for any of the other bolts. On mine, it was the bolt at the bottom closest to the speaker that was quite loose.
  8. Press covering back on.
  9. Push trim back on - it just pushes on.
  10. Put torx screws back in
  11. Enjoy a rattle free Berlingo *
* I don't think there is such a thing  Tongue

Thanks very much for taking the time to write this. Mine has exactly the same symptoms, and has since brand new, so I'll follow your guide and hopefully get rid of my last rattle.

The dealer had a try and achieved nothing. I think they re-seated the little window next to the mirror - they were obviously looking in the wrong place.

I did this intervention on my PUG not very long ago. In my case it was a 10mm nut that holds the window motor support to the door that had gotten loose, and was rattling.

The procedure is exactly as described above.

I recommend to be careful with the Styrofoam white weather cover that is held with adhesive, under the door trim. And I also bought some of these plastic trim holders, sot that if one broke, I had others to replace. This way, bruit force instead of courage could be applied, and the trim came out nicely, only breaking 2 or 3 of these plastic trim holders.

Sorry for the german web site, but this is where I found the trim holders:

I'm stuck at step 1. How do you get the door handle off?!

with a screwdriver (small tip) gently prise out the handle cover. It is similar to this image:

inside you will find the two torx screws.

Cheers.

Thanks very much - I was looking at the chrome lever handle, the one you pull to open the door!

Apologies for being stupid.

This seems to be a very common fault with the driver's door. Perhaps it's because that door gets used most.  My rattle developed after a few months from new and someone on this forum said it was the window regulator. Armed with this info I made a claim under warranty. The dealer was reluctant to accept the diagnosis from the forum, but eventually admitted it was correct. They had to re-fit the door trim again when I noticed a few months later that it was loose at the bottom.  I've got another 6 months of a 3 year warranty left so am hoping any problems will arise before it expires.
I've had 15 cars and vans over the past 50 years, including some top spec Volvo estates, but this Berlingo 2014 VTR auto is by far the best.

Well in my case it was the passenger side door, but my Peugeot has the steering wheel on the left Smile so in the end, it was the same door you guys describe here...

Mine's the right side door too. I reckon the torque wrench they have in this position on the production line must be reading too high, so it stops before tightening it and they all go out with loose right-side window regulators. I thought I was joking, but this could actually be the cause!

Mine's under warranty, and is due a service in a month, so I'll ask them to have a look at it. It's too hot to work outside at the moment anyway.
