Default Rattling from door?

So I normally play bassy trap music at around a volume of 30. And every time the bass would kick in there would be a very annoying rattle coming from the passenger door. I opened the map pocket and that in a way helps but the rattle is still there. I tried pulling the diagonal grab handle and that reduces it. Does anyone else have this problem? Should I take off the door panel to see if anything is broken?

Its the door panel vibrating agains the door. You'll need some dynamat or mastic between them to stop the rattle.

I have a rattle coming from the passenger side as well, but not just with music. It rattles like hell over bumps, but only on certain days. I can't for the life of me find out where it's coming from, gonna have to check out the door handle as you mentioned. Does it sound like a plastic rattle? Almost like a plastic version of pulling a spring door stop back and letting it go (but obviously slower)?

Same issue with 08 IS350. It is at the bottom of the door panel near to where the speaker is. I can actually put my hand up in there through the panel if I pull it - I'm certain there is a broken clip because my driver side door panel is MUCH tighter to the metal frame.

Anyone know where to source the clips that secure the door panels to the metal door frames and how I could possibly add one to this area without having to take the entire panel off?

I also have the clicky/plastic/ticky/creaking/whatevery sound at the center of dash where the AC vents are. If I could get rid of that I would be so much happier.

I have this issue also.

And I also have the annoying creaking sound from the plastic trim around the instrument cluster
