Ooh the car has remained rattle free for months now, and it better stay that way for a long time to come or i am gonna do this to the car and sell it off, he he he... just kidding man.

after all the HEAVY damping the car is rattle free, i dont remember the price i spent for the NOISEKILL now its been more than 6 months, i have no clue if its available in Bangalore, but can certainly get it from Mumbai, PM Bass&Trouble or Ramie2400 they should be able to help for with the same.

dude fixing just the rattles is easy on swift and will cost a nominal amount too,

all you have to do is pick up Closed-Cell foam sheets that are usually sold at packing materials shops, just buy 2mm thick sheets and stick three layers of this beneath each door pad or if you can find a 6mm ones just stick a layer, and all the door pads should sit tight and nice with no rattles.

just make sure all your power window/ window rolling fitments/ speaker wires or others dont get in the way and are tightly fixed at their places and shut the pads tight and fix the screws back this should just fine.

If you want Damping along with it thats a whole other story and you will have to do the same thing i did, tough you wont have to damp the pads only the door's insides and the outer part!

all the best.

Default Re: jugaad di gaddi! (DIY rattle fixes on my swift LDi)

Hey man, great work. For an amateur like myself, i have some doubts.
How is the door panel connected? Is it just with simple screws or does it have some wiring etc too? because i can see some loose wires on the front door. Is it complicated with those wires or is it easy?
