I spent ages chasing a vibration in the passengers door in a commodore. It only happened at speed. Turned out that the mud flap was loose. Had the exact same problem 2 years later in a falcon.

I've got a rattle in my NW passenger door as well. Also the drivers armrest doesn't sit flush to the door at the top. Was going to wait till the 15000 service but that is nearly 10000k away. Might have to just take it in next time I'm home.

Well I had some time today to strip the door trimming off again. I covered all the screw heads that hold sections off the trimming ( on the reverse side) onto the main door trimming with single sided foam insulation used for window insulation.
Problem solved and noise gone.

I currently have the same problem . Been back to the dealers 5 times and had to make a complaint to Mitsubishi Australia as the dealer decided to modify my door trim.

Will let you know of the outcome

Hi I have the same problem that come and goes like Pwoffey described. Dealers have told me rattles warranty are only up to 1500 km. I have discussed this with mits Australia and they concur. The noise is driving me up the wall !. I am happy to pay for someone to look at it only if they know what they are doing. Every mits dealer i take the car too pull the door apart and tightens up things. Anyone else got this issue and can help ?

I have unsubscribed from this post and thus have forgotten all about it. The rattle came back after a while. Next step?
I looked at the door latch and how tight does the door close if the latch is not positioned correctly.
I went and bought a size 40 torque bit 1/4" drive and adaptor. Measured distance for both driver door and passenger door to edge of the pillar. Pasenger door was 20mm, driver door was 21mm. So I loosened the passenger side and adjusted it to 22mm making sure the alignment is correct with the refference mark. Be carefull not to damage the head of the spline screws during loosening as it tightened a lot.
My guess is that at the factory during assembly it is just done by eye and tightened. So the rattle is not always in the door, it is the door! How much of this could also cause road noise from the door not closing tight enough?
Anyway, noise is gone and wife is happy.
I will get some photos up later.
