Jeep Wrangler JK Rattles - Where they come from and how to fix them

1. "Clunk" when hitting bumps = door latch. Wrap electrical tape around the door catch.
2. "Rattle" coming from seatbelt = tighten hex bolt for top under freedom panel
3. "Rattle" from driver mirror = haven't found cause but after moving the black cover and some light hits around the mirror I know it's coming from either the housing or the mirror itself
4. Riber "clicking" sound around door = haven't found the cause but it seems that it's the weatherstripping at the top of the door to the corner piece. If you push the corner piece against itself you hear a clicking sound when the rubber releases.
