Finally fixed my passenger door rattles. I was getting some from near the switches and also from the bottom by the speaker. When there were certain low frequencies coming from the speaker it would rattle the door car. It's been about a week and a half and everything is still silent.

2017 STI door card rattle, rear seat rattle - in case someone is searching

Here's what I did:

Lots of this tape - it's like a fabric tape that can be used in place of electrical tape

I placed some on the back of every door car clip and folded it over the edges so that every part of the clip that rubs against the card or the door was covered





Then I covered the edge of the speaker outline with the tape, too





And finally I taped the **** out of the switches so they couldn't wiggle around anymore. There was a lot of play in them before






So far so good on this fix.

I also had a squeak/rub noise coming from the back seat. The driver's side rear seat back was rubbing in the top corner - so I dropped the seat back and then took a microfiber towel and shoved it in the top corner near the door and then closed it. That seems to have resolved that noise, too.
