Weird Noise From Rear Door

I have been getting a weird noise from my back door. When driving straight-nothing. But when I turn and go up any incline or uneven pavement or dirt this grinding sounds comes from the back. I have been able to isolate it into the locking mechanism. I put some tape in there to isolate it further. I put electrical tape around the locking mechanism where the door meets the frame and it seemed to go away. As always when i go to my mechanic he can't find a thing. I've tried moving the door with the tire on and off and can't replicate it. Definitely worse when the spare is on.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Properly adjust the rear door latch and lubricate the attachment points with the super fragilistic silicone paste.
