This intermittent rattle seems to be coming from the overhead cluster where the rearview mirror, lights and microphone are. No outside pressing on parts will stop the rattle so I'm assuming it's inside the box. Is there a way to remove the cover to trace where it might be coming or do you suggest pestering Mercedes Benz about it?

I know that was mentioned elsewhere in the forum but haven't been able to find it.

You can remove the panel and add some felt padding with double sided sticky tape, or, take your new car to the dealer and let them do it.

If it's anything like the rattle i have (which it sounds like it is), it should stop if you press up on the headliner right in the first groove in front of the pano roof and just to the right a bit from dead center with the roof cluster. Not a PERMANENT fix... but at least it'll narrow down where it's coming from.
