^Haha I love it!

Question though. I haven't gone to get the material yet, but I was wondering how many layers of it you need to use. Just one layer? That simple?

Just one layer, anymore and the panel won't snap back on.

I used some of the Dynamat I purchased to do my doors. Did the same trick but today I noticed them rattling again. I must need to put some more, I dont think I put it in all the spots you mentioned though.

Thanks for this, this rattling has annoyed me for almost a year! The foam stickers worked like a charm

I only did the driver side at the moment since it was really hard to get the cover on and off (messed up my fingernails). As far as I can tell the passenger side doesn't rattle but I'd like to do it on that side as well eventually. What's the best tool to pop the cover off without scratching anything?

Panel poppers. And if there is a Harbor Freight in your area they go for $10 or less.

Thanks OP for the DIY. I used some industrial strength Velcro to stick an amp under my seat. So I had a bunch of the softer side of the Velcro left and it worked great for the door rattle. Just cut it and put it right where you said and rattle is completely gone.

It is more than likely your clips that hold the door panel on. I am now having the entire door panel rattle thanks to the clips being worn out from taking the panel off. At first, I thought I needed more foam, but if you listen close, it is not the window switch area; at least not in my case. I called the dealer to get replacement clips and they are $3 a piece.... we need either 9 or 11 (can't remember exactly) per-side.
I know that you can get aftermarket clips, but they usually are not as tight fitting as OEM, so it may not fix the problem.

Well it turns out I was out of the soft side of the velcro so I went to Walmart and ended up getting these things called Super Sliders 3/8 in. in size. They are fuzzy pads with self adhesive side. I think I paid $2 for it and it came with 84 felt pads. They look like the stuff you put on cabinet doors so that when you close them they don't bang loud. They are located next to the Duct tape isle (assuming all Walmarts have the same lay out). I also used these on the slide in slots of the fog lights to make sure that it's secure. Hope this helps.

I did the driver side just now and it works great and has no buzzing!! This seemed to be perfect and there was very minimal cutting! I also got it at Wal-Mart, but I've seen it for sure at Advance Auto Parts. I assume they would have it at AutoZone too.I found the foam he suggested, but like most of you have found way too much for a small project. I paid like $5 for it btw. Good luck!
