B Post Rattle

I have a small intermittent rattle that seems to be in the passenger side B post. I have looked at the forum and didn't spot anything on this area...but plenty on rattles! I have listened with the window (front and rear) open and closed and had useful passengers holding bits of trim to try to identify something loose but nothing has been found. I did have the rear window fittings sorted last service, it is not that. I am considering removing the covers on the B pillar to see what is behind (besides the seat belt fixings) but has someone done that or has a schematic as it seems a bit drastic. Turning up the radio does fix the problem.

I had similar rattle/vibration noises coming from B pillar. At service they took a look at it and in my case it was the loosen window mechanism so no actual connection to B pillar :)

Fixed it. But took all this time as I did get the b pillar trim off and even felt under the headlining...but it was the door lock. I noticed the door not closing correctly... spotted that was due to the door lock, tightened that and now no rattle!
