I've got the right side rattle. Its not constant but you hear it when going over bumps and the like. Definitely plasticy sounding, thought it was the sunglasses holder or something sliding around on the cubby hole. Now i'm thinking b pillar, but nothing to do with the seatbelt

Could it be the side air-bags making the noise? I think the side air bag is right at the top of the pillars.

Thats a scary thought. Hope it doesn't go off when it shouldn't.

I think I found how to stop it. If I put pressure on the headrest, pushing towards the door, it does not rattle. not sure yet if it is the headrest or if the pressure changes something in the chair/rails. can someone else confirm....

Dealer took it for a spin and found no noise. Blamed my snow brush instead, s.

I think I know where the rattling sound comes from. It should be the headrest on the passenger seat. I notice that there is no rattling sound if there is someone sitting on it while there is if the seat is empty. Wonder if there is anyway I could take out that headrest. I do notice I can't push the headrest all the way down =\
