Icon5 sliding rear window rattle?

got most of the rattles worked out in the cab when the w-7 hits, the only one i cant seem to silence is the rear slider vibrating when the sub dominates. short of stuffing things in it how do i make it stop?

thanks, drew

I took a small piece of rubber, and stuffed it in the middle of the window. It makes no noise at all, and i use a paperclip to remove it. It does not have to be rubber. A friend of mine is using a a wadded up piece of paper.

remove the window. haha just kidding. not to sound dumb but try shimming stuff with paper or stupid stuff like toothpicks. I remember all the plastic rattled in myt ruck and i just have the stock ford mp3 stereo. I used a top of a cigarette pack on the door handle to make it stop vibrating, and a toothpick in the back speaker grill... sometimes a ghetto fix works the best.
