Rattle in 2013 G350

My car has 1,060km on it and it sound like a rattle is coming from high up in the B pillar and maybe in the C pillar as well.

Is this a door alignment, catch alignment or something else??

I have tried getting someone to press on various trim parts whilst driving to see if it goes away which it does not, it also does not occur on all rough tar surfaces, only certain ones... Maybe a frequency of the roughness.....

Dealers here suck so they not going to be much help (they bricked my ecu when the car had 109km on it)

It isn't the seat belt height adjuster? They can rattle.

i was thinking the same thing, it could be something silly like that. What kind of dealer is that? You spend 100K+, they should be working hand over fist to get the problems solved for you

Since your post was while ago, I was wonder whether you took care of this problem. My dealer said earlier model of G350 had rattle issue from headliner. Clips that hold headliner can get loosened.
