Passenger side B pillar rattle.

Picked up our CGL Overland on Saturday. Just started to get an annoying rattling from the passenger side B pillar area. Need to ride in the back seat while the wife drives to see if something simple. I checked all the easy things. Almost sounds like where the door hinges mount to the pillar. Thought at first it was the pano roof. Really don’t want the dealer prying off panels just yet.. Any others hear the rattling?

Oh man I wish it was that easy!!! Figured it out. Been in the auto insurance claims industry for well over 20 years so not scared to pull a panel or two. I have had my share of elevated repair issues involving squeaks/rattles/noise. Always see the techs manhandle trim and get everything greasy so I figured I’d check it first. At the base of the B pillar where the seat belt pretensioner bracket mounts the sandwiched spot welded sheet metal it had just enough of a gap to cause a squeak. Bit of grease between and boom…gone.
Shame it had it but it doesn’t sour us on it one bit. All cars have issues. Drive on!
