My wife and I just picked up an '08 V8 XC90 with the sport trim (black exterior with white leather). So far, we are both in love with it. However, I have noticed a fair amount of rattling coming from the front door trim when I listen to music with any moderate bass. The culprite seems to be the door handle plastic, not the speaker grill as I have seen in other threads/forums. Has anyone else experienced this? Any reccommended fixes??

Pop the door card off (instructions are posted here somewhere or on Volvo.se). There are about 13 bolts that hold the major and minor door card moldings together and are typically loose. Then install some Hush Mat or similar (eDead, Dynamat, SMS) on the back of the door cards, around the window switch and around the lock plunger (the closed cell foam, not the tarry stuff). When re-assembling the doors, make sure the factory felt is on the handle where it touches the door card.
