My microphone says its in the nose area. Of course, rattles like this can be telescoped from other areas. Gonna keep trying cause the dealer is useless for something like this - went to the dealer several times and say they can't replicate. They won't let me take them to a proper area where I can replicate. Like I said, useless so I'll do it myself.
Fwiw take a look at the coolant recovery bottle. Others have reported it rattles. Mine did too, but a cardboard shim solved the problem. May be an unlikely source, but it's in the general area...
