Rattle around rearview mirror under headliner?

It appears to be coming from between the headliner and the roof of the car.

I most often notice it around the passenger side visor, sometimes around the courtesy light switch and, today, I heard it coming from where the passenger sunglass holder is.

I slip my fingers into that gap and it temporarily ends the sound. Is there a more permanent fix?

Garage
Try the cover on the microphone. I had a buzz/rattle in my 453 that was caused by a loose cover on the microphone.

I have a similar rattle, and it seems more like the headliner than the mic grille. If i push up on the headliner a little bit near the edge where the first bend is, before it stops and the pano roof starts, it stops for a bit. It's also not constant. Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. You know... another example of those LOVELY issues a dealership can't touch cause it seems they can never recreate it.

Appears to be two things. First is definitely around the dome light/microphone cover. Second appears to be between the bottom of the roof and the top of the headliner just above the passenger side mirror.
