Default Elusive rattle by visors/sunroof

I have noticed an annoying rattle, sounds like right above pass side visor, front of sunroof area.

This only happens when the sunroof is parked. If I tilt or open it, even an inch, the rattle disappears. A search didn't bring up anything and I cant find anything loose there. Any wisdom would be fantastic.

Thanks!!

there's a thread somewhere about isolating the rattle, usually due to a plastic wire harness clip.

That was it indeed, the deflector was a little rattly when compressed as if the sunroof were closed. I still have some of that absurdly overpriced Mercedes sunroof lube leftover...

I'm pretty sure my driveway will make every rattle the car ever even thought of having come out to play.

Thanks for the link, problem solved
