Rattle from Dome Light Area


I have a 2004 X5 E53 N62 with a regular sunroof.

Here is the problem, something around the ceiling center console (lights switches and such, right behind the sunroof) is rattling pretty bad. If I put my hand on the ceiling right before the console, the vibration stops, or almost disappears. It is driving me nuts, its not a quiet rattle, it is loud.

What I have tried so far. I have taken of the console, and lubed it, and re-installed it, and still no change, I tried 4 rubber isolators on each side, no change, I tired to put silicon on any clip that was moving, no change....

Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks in advance!
