Good Day folks, how can I reduce the switch rattle of my doors? The doors are dampened and the switches are the last thing to deal with. Its mostly on the driver side master switches.

If it's the switch module. Wrap with cloth tape.
This. All the switches in my Toyota rattled like crazy. One layer of cloth tape and all is quiet.

Not cloth and tape… cloth tape. I use Tesa brand but I’m sure there’s others that work also.

I have a couple rolls of that brand, it doesn't stick well. Under the hood I used Tesa 51035, it sticks well.

Good catch! I did a quick search saw the red on the inner band and copied the link. My bad… don’t use the stuff I linked.

For the record I use the legit Tesa tape. Here’s what the inside of the roll should look like…
