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?

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.

My rattle comes from the cover of the dome light.

I also have a high pitched squick coming from the rear. Haven't discovered the cause of that one just yet.

I get that one sometimes now.. mine sounds like its behind me on the drivers side. I know these little sounds tend to happen the more you drive, so im not too worried about it. Just about a week ago my steering wheel started creeking when i turn. So now theres that too. Im hoping once I get my new tires the ride will be a bit quieter in general. But 99% of the time my music is going and I cant hear most of the little noises anyway. :D
