My car once developed a minor rattle in the right-side front door that turned out to be caused by a small washer trapped inside the door dropped during assembly, no doubt. It has been through the touchless car wash twice now and I am wondering if everyone has water and soap left around the inside of the door.

I would have thought it would have been as easy as popping out the light housing from underneath the door handle and replacing it with a new bulb. It isn't a high torque fastener, just be careful not to strip it. This car is only a year and half old with 9000 miles and this should not be happening.
