There are 6 points of contact that I found that cause the rattle.
1-4 are the rear edge of the plastic shelf, it has 4 fins that are covered in an adhesive foam. You can see that it's worn through from rubbing the metal shelf underneath. i pointed out the spots on the metal shelf where you can see the rubbing from the plastic fins on the bottom of the plastic cover.
5 is the trailing edge of the plastic shelf where it touches the glass.
6 is the keyless module; it's a small metal clip suspending the module slightly above the metal shelf, the thin metal support flexes quite a bit allowing the module to vibrate against the metal. Remove this with a 10mm socket.
