Annoying sound

Hi all,

Only while driving (and at low speeds), I can hear a rattle? (not sure how to describe it, but it's an annoying, low sound) coming from the passenger side part of the windshield. When I stop the car, the rattle stops.
I had numerous people sit and try to identify where it's coming from but nobody seems to be able to pinpoint it.
It could be the strip of material sitting on the outside of the windshield on the passenger side, going from the top to the bottom of the windshield.
Or it could be where the plastic meets the windshield.
But again I'm not sure, so hoping someone hear has heard this noise? Thanks all.

I have the same problem, but on the driver's side pillar. I can only hear it on certain paved roads and it drives me nuts.

I had a rattle on the passenger side, but discovered it was just the ipod cable moving around in the glovebox.

I had a rattle there when the visor was down. It disappeared with the visor up. I put some black insulating tape on the visor pin which locates in the holding recess. Problem gone. Good luck.
