Your description is perfect. My rattle is pretty consistent, though. It's almost like the goop that's supposed to seal the headliner to the roof isn't holding very well. It seems to be worse in the mornings, when the temps are lower. I haven't heard it much in the afternoon. Things probably expand and stick better up there with the afternoon sun beating down.

I'm interested to hear what your service dept. says about it, if you do bring it up. They may develope some kind of fix if enough service departments from around the country call this in to Ford for advice.
