Rattling Door

Anyone have issues with a first gen door?

When im driving down the road and hit some bumps the drives door sounds like its loose from the frame. It doesn't move with the body so to speak.

Is this common for the 1st gens, anyone have ideas as to the cause?

Thank you for your time.

If my windows arent the whole way up they sound like they're about to fall out.
Mine too but they have been like that since I bought it about 70k miles ago. I just figured it was an inherent property of the truck.

Any one else have this issue?

The window rattling may also be your issue.
^ Here is my dilemma with that, mine shake like a salt shaker when they are half way down but my window rubber is perfect and they have rattled that way since I got it in 04.
have you checked the felt tracks that go around your window? Per courtesy's nissans site, they extend into the door a good amount. Maybe the're bad inside the door?
I have not. Honestly the rattling rarely bothers me, I have limo tint and drive with my windows up most of the time. But I will check out inside the door panel too.
I dont think new seals could be causing the rattling. On the contrary this would create for less slack and be more likely to make the door fit tighter when it closes.
