An effective way to deal with that is to wrap the rods in a thin, closed cell foam in a way that does no interfere with their operation. You can use self adhesive foam and roll it over the rods or regular foam and use zip ties to hold it in place around the rods. If the rattle is also coming from where the rod inserts in the bracket you can use a piece of butyl rubber rope to "sandwich" the bracket around the rod...the butyl rubber rope is very sticky but also stretchy so it will still allow the rod/bracket to operate while still damping vibration.

I had a 99 Si that was doing the same thing. I ended up using ensolite foam around the connection points, but it was tricky getting them just right so it wouldn't encumber the the locking mechanism. Also sound deadening the doors helped as well.

I currently use this stuff:

And am partial to the Stinger version of Dynamat due to its value:

Pull the rod out of the bracket near the lock. Put a dab of 100% silicone in the plastic hole and the put the rod back in. Let it dry. Once the caulk is dry break the rod free by hand in the natural movement of the rod. Reconnect the handle and live the rattle free life. Another trick is bearing grease but that only works for a few years. The silicone works very well.

Great idea!

So the silicone dries and creates a "cushion" and as 100% silicone caulking is naturally slippery it doesn't bind?

Genius.

Cover the rods in closed cell foam like our 1/8" Over Kill Pro
