Rattle from Front Passenger Area

Can't seem to figure out what it is for the life of me, I can't reproduce it while the car is at a stand still, but there is a rattling noise coming from the passenger side of the car.

So Far I've tried:
1. vigorously shaking the door, quiet, and opening and closing door from the inside as well.
2. Moved the seat to many different positions and still noise persists.
3. Checked inside the glove compartment

Anyone have any other suggestions? Everything seems pretty solid.

Is your armrest raised? Mine occasionally rattles. My rear armrest, too, until I wedged a small towel between the armrest and seat. Took quite a while to track down that rattle! Good luck.

Its so strange, the rattling has reduced/disapeared once it started raining yesterday. So strange.

I think I figured out where the rattle is coming from, not sure how to fix it though. I think it's seatbelt related. When I plug the seatbelt into the retainer and it's extended there's no more rattles, when it goes back to resting position it starts rattling again. The noise is nothing like the belt hitting the B-Pillar, so I imagine its the seatbelt tensioner rattling inside or the latch that holds the seatbelt at the top of the b Pillar
