FWIW, check the things you've put in the car first. Especially check inside the glovebox for hard items that are touching the plastic directly on the sides of the box. I wrap things like my tire gauge in a piece of soft rubber shelf liner to keep 'em from rattling. You might also want to see if the cabin air filter is securely in position as well while you're at it.

Even still, I am troubleshooting a similar small rattle / vibration right now myself... I rearranged a flashlight and some things in the glove box last night when I got home so no idea yet if that was it or not.

Had a similar "rattle" in our 2012 OB. Turned out to be the metal tab on the seatbelt/shoulder strap resting against the plastic trim cover when the seatbelt is not in use. Hitting bumps made the tab bang against the plastic and it sounded like a rattle around the window. After pointing the tab down, the "rattle" went away.

Could it be the visor extender on the passenger side? That's what makes the noise in my OB...

I was going to suggest checking the visor extender too. I saw someone else mention it on here & turned out that was my problem, except it was the driver's side one.
