rear door noise

hi there everyone im new here, i love my rav4 limited I4, really amazing suv, in the last couple of weeks the rear door noise is getting my wife crazy, it sounds that is not tight enough, the dealer put some kind of tape and it works for a few hours and then the same problem. Doesn anybody has the same problem?.

Also there is a noise under the rav, most of the time when crossed wind is on the highway.

No rattles in our V-6 AWD LTD since the moonroof was snugged down a few months ago. We have 8K+ miles over some pretty rough roads w/o any noise complaints of late.

However, the actual source of noises (rattles) can be misleading. It helps to have someone take a position in the back of the vehicle to listen - being careful not to eliminate noises from loose seats or seat-belt buckles, etc.

Also, secure tools and such that may have loosened over time. Another rattle / noise source is the cross-bars of the roof rack.

Last, check to see that the spare and cover are snug as noises can be transmitted thru the car even if it originates from outside.

There are two black rubber "stops" inside on the handle side of the door. They look like a miniature hockey puck. I lost (the top) one when my RAV was barely a month old.

Without it, my door rattles a bit when I close it, but I haven't noticed any noises while driving.

You may want to check to see if you've lost one of these rubber stops.

I had a rattle in my rear door and I took it in. Had a tech ride with me because it was hard to tell where the noise was coming from, it kind of reverberates through the car. Turned out the wiper assembly in the rear door was rattling and they fixed it
