Tipo 2017 door rattle?

Hi, I have a 2017 Tipo Easy Plus SW MJet 120 with around a 1000miles on it. It has developed an irritating buzzing/rattle in the rear area of the drivers door. Sort of where the exterior handle sits. Its not loud, but because it is not far from your ear, you tend to keep listening to it. Anyone else had similar issues?

The cars been in all day at Fiat,apparently the technician has done a few things and is confident he's cured it,he just wants to check first thing just in case the overnight cooler temps alters things,so top marks for being thorough,'ll update with the outcome tomorrow.

Well silence has returned !,the rattle was the door latch,they adjusted the striker so the
lock is held tighter,latch and rods/cables greased and seals lubricated,even adjusting the postion of the seat belt on the passenger side so it doesn't cause a noise.Warrington Fiat have done well.

Re: Tipo 2017 door rattle?

Thank you to all responders to my original query.
I did cure this problem myself, firstly I took the plunge and
removed the door card and peeled back part of the membrane. I did find that the shaft that links the outside door-key barrel to the inner door lock mechanism is a rattle-fit in it's hole in the mechanism (there may be a sleeve missing?). I put a piece of duct-tape around the shaft to stop any metallic rattle.
However, a test drive after re-assembly still produced a noise.
I remembered that soon after taking delivery of the car, I waxed it totally, including all the door shuts, and that when it rained, the noises stopped.
So I then used some silicon spray and cleaned around the door aperture, all the door rubbers, and the window guide channels. Hey presto, noise gone!
So please try the silicone spray first, before removing the door card!
If you need some tips on removing the door card, let me know.
