Our '72 GTO has had a rattle in the drivers door I haven't been able to track down. Everything in the is door is tight, no loose or stripped nuts, bolts, or screws and the window mechanism is in very good condition. The last thing I can think of are the door hinge pins. The door doesn't sag, rub on the sill, and closes great, but when we're driving the door rattles. Has anyone replaced the hinge pins on their GTO? There are several different brands out there and I was wondering if anyone can suggest a good one or if there is something happening that may be causing the rattle.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help

It’s possible that the window felts are old and compressed, no longer cushioning the glass.

However all the way up, or in the closed position, I wouldn’t think that the glass would rattle.

Hmmmm . . .

Be sure to let us know what you find,

Hi BLK69JUDGE,
Yup. The window doesn't make a sound regardless of where I have it. The mirror cable is not rubbing on anything in the door. Last summer I was able to stop the rattle by taping a small piece of 1/8" thick rubber to the door where the A-pillar meets the door jamb. I've tried to lift the door when it's open and it doesn't budge. I will check the emergency brake cable. Thanks
