Yep, speaker rattles my door trim too. It's bass from the speakers, without a doubt.

That's pretty much what I've gotten from my dealer so far...

"We can't hear anything - move along, nothing to see here."

I agree, it's really annoying... and I pretty much always hear the rattle above 45-50 MPH in the right front door area.

The story that I basically have come to is that the dealer is afraid to do anything about it in fear of getting rejected on their claim to the mothership. I'm going to open a ticket with ford corp and see if they will authorize some resources to get it fixed instead of giving me the run around.

Perhaps it's best not to wait for Ford to redesign the door panels, speaker grills, etc. as it may never happen.

In any case, I wouldn't trust a dealer tech to resolve this problem.

Any updates to this? I have the same problem. It is only on certain bass levels too. It makes the sound quality horrible. My bass is already low enough and I sometimes shift the sound to the right speaker to make it better.
It is the same as everyone says. There is a gap in the door panel storage area. When I press or pull on it and hold..... there is no rattle.
I've tried putting something in the storage and it doesn't help.
I refuse to "wedge" something in anywhere... that is a crap fix for a quality car. I never take it into the dealer because I don't want to have to try to reproduce the sound......
It is a little thing that is truly stopping me from enjoying the sound in my car, which is a very important thing to me.
I'll try to change my EQ settings, etc but I would love to know if anyone got anywhere with this? I see no solution.

I just noticed mine started doing this, and this is my plan too.
