Focus Vignale MK4 door rattle

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am a proud owner of a Focus MK4 Vignale. Loving the car as I came back to focus after a long time. Everything is brilliant with the car except a rattle from the driver's door with slight vibration going the window. I have read people complaining about the rattle. Rattle is there even when the music is turned off so it's not related to the bass in the car. Anyone else experienced this and managed to get it sorted? I've got the car booked with dealer for 29th July.

Thank you

No problem like that with mine . 

I've never had problem like this before with any of my cars. Also noticed yesterday that chrome trim on driver's door slides backwards possibly with the vibration (I mentioned). I can push it back to it's original position with a finger.

There is no squeak at all just a rattle and vibration in the window. Only driver side

Just an Update:

 

Picked up my car today from the dealer. They’ve ordered a new door panel for the rattle. Also the vibration in the window was resolved by applying more lubricants. Will be waiting to get a call now.

Please let me know when you get an update. I had my MK4 ST Line X 1.5 Diesel in twice now to look at rattles, mostly when music on (got the B&O Play Speakers), but can be heard without music and driving too. Seems to be in 2/3 places in both front doors (top right/top left, and around the speaker). Part of me thinks it's the window rattling?. First time they replaced missing rubber seals, second time they couldn't find anything. Going to rebook in and provide a demonstration. Any ammunition you can give would be great.

Hi JackH95,

Main thing I did is took a picture of the door from inside and out. Marked the area concerned and handed that picture in. I also realised that due to the vibration in the door the chrome strip near the window slided from its place. It could be pushed back in its place but would slide again. I’ve not had a call back yet.

I've got a similar, annoying "knocking" from the front passenger's door in my Mk 4 Focus whenever I driver over any rough surface too. I don't really trust the dealer to not make a mess (chipping/breaking bits of plastic, etc) so I'm probably going to have a look at taking the door panel off myself - does anyone know how to remove it?

Just to say that my Mk4 focus went in yesterday to have this looked at. The guy at the service desk took it out for a test drive and said to me afterwards "that must have driven you mad - I've taken cars apart for less than that". Turns out it that there's a junction box inside the door which should be held in place with a rubber fitting - they replaced the fitting and all is OK now.

Thanks for the update Dark Andy. Glad it's all sorted out for you. I'm still waiting for the weather strip to arrive at my dealer. They recon that should stop this rattle. If that doesn't help then I'll mention your solution to them. It's very annoying as it seems to be getting louder day by day.
