Anyone here have an annoying rattle by the driver's side air vent that goes away after the car is warm?

I'm still trying to nail this one down. It literally only pisses me off for a solid 5 minutes when going over some weird road surfaces, but once the car is warm it goes away. It's been dang near difficult nailing down precisely where it's coming from too!

Actually I did. Discovered there may been two issues. The few plastic clips on the door panel we’re becoming loose and was exacerbated when got warmer. Had to get dealer take off door panel to replace clips and felt tape entire door panel where met metal frame door. Second part was easier to DIY. There is a fuse box cover right next to the drivers air vent when you open door (see manual). Carefully pop cover open on lower right part with plastic pry tool (or tiny screw driver with tape) so you don’t damage. Felt tape all clips and contact points where cover touches fuse panel. All good for me after that. Good luck. 👍🏼

Oh my gosh. Thank you! I took it apart tonight and used my finger to hit the metal clips and went..."Oh I found you bugger!"

This is fantastic and an attestation to the community being bigger than the sum of its pieces. Much appreciated!
