So far the rear door on my RAV4 doesn't rattle, but if it did I would install additional rubber shims so that the door fit to the body is tighter, as I have with previous hatch doors which actually did rattle. Doesn't appear that the RAV4 latch or horizontal V-shaped door contact near the bottom are adjustable.

I bought new pieces and hardware. They weren't pricey. And the new ones are black which look cleaner.
That looks great! I might want to do that myself. Do you happen to have the part numbers? How much force did it take to remove those Torx screws? I think I would remove and paint the three rusty screws for the door latch.

I got new ones for the latch. Just hadn't come in yet. I'll see if I can dig up the slips to get the pn's.
They broke loose easily. BTW.
