Rattle in overhead unit with sync mic and moonroof switch

Does anyone else have this? This rattle is coming from the overhead unit in the SE (not sure if it's the same in all versions of the car) that has the sunglasses holder, the sync mic, and the switch for my moonroof. When I start the car, the engine vibration rattles something in there. Additionally, road/engine vibration while driving also causes a rattle. When there's a passenger sitting in the passenger seat, they indicate that it sounds like it's coming from the right side of that overhead unit (to the left of the passengers head). I've stuffed foam insulation up there hoping to remedy it, but no dice, it just keeps rattling, and it absolutely drives me insane. Any ideas what this could be? I've even opened the moonroof and climbed up through it to look between the gap of the headliner and the roof of the car, and I can't see anything rattling against something else, but yet is persists.

Its a common complaint. When I took my car in for service I told them to fix it. I was told they put a screw through it, but I can't see where.

I've also seen people pack some foam between the headliner and sunroof module to remedy the problem.

I've noticed this, but it's not really loud enough to bother me. Seems more pronounced in cold weather.
