Re: rattly doors

Yeh I have this problem use mine as a taxi as well so I tend to go over about 100 plus speed bumps a day. I aint found a solution to the problem and i have had new catches fitted due to a fault and this made no difference

Re: rattly doors

do you have electric rear windows..? ask the dealer to look at the retaining clips which hold door locking cables, and courtesy light cables etc... in place. They may be able to fit extra retaining clips. I don't own a doblo, but cables are a cause of rattles in many cases.

Not spoke to them about it to be honest I just put it down to a design fault and thought all the doblo's would be the same.

Re: rattly doors

so according to my dealer its not the doors at all but the leaf springs, new ones ordered and will be fitted under warranty....might explain why your noise didnt go away when they changed the door locks !

Re: rattly doors

That sounds about right that as I know my springs are also getting ready for changing. You will have to let me know how you get on and if it makes a big difference.

Re: rattly doors

well its all fixed now, they reckon it was the leafs but I reckon it may well have been the brackets for the rear anti roll bar, maybe worth trying getting down underneath getting hold of the thing and giving it a good shake, when I did it to mine it rattled

Re: rattly doors

Glad to read this. Wifes April05 has a rattle. Dealer fitted new rear shocks - basically 'cos he didn't know what else to do, but no cure!
