Question 2001 E39 Sunroof Rattle

Does anyone have a suggestion on stopping a sunroof rattle?

If I slightly open, either UP or BACK, and then close the glass the rattle disappears for awhile. I figure the linkage is loose. Is that possible and if so how do I tighten it up?

While I'm on rattles I just thought about how the passenger side head rest brackets (vertical chrome bars) rattles in the holes at the top of the seat back. I keep the headrest down all the way to prevent the rattle. Any suggestions on this one too? Thanks!
