Exclamation Rattling noise from door and ticking/squeaky noise from center dash.

I have a rattling/vibrating plastic noise coming from the front passenger door, close to the B-pillar. It's a constant non-stop noise when the vehicle's idling, driving slowly with no throttle or backing up.
But when I push the front passenger door's armrest outward from the side, the noise seems to stop, or at least get better, but can't figure out what's actually causing the noise.
And the door makes a short 1 second buzzing noise every time it's closed as if a spring is vibrating (no soft-close option).

I also have a ticking/squeaky noise around the NAV screen/center dash above the center vents whenever the vehicles's not on a glass smooth road. It sounds like the plastic trim pieces are flexing, so I tried pushing them in various places, but no use.

Anyone experience similar problems?
