New Rattle from Driverís Side B-Pillar Area

New, intermittent rattle for the past month coming from somewhere to the left of the driver's seat; not sure if it's the driver's door, driver's side b-pillar (upper or lower portion), driver's side rear door or the driver's seat. Tried holding several panels while driving, but the noise doesn't go away when occurring. Unfortunately, gotten to the point of being a nuisance. Any ideas? And, no, it's not the seat belt or anything stored in the car...

It seems like your car has new issues every month, have you looked into getting rid of it?

Could be anything. Would recommend trying to isolate if possible (speakers, ac/heat fan, wipers, rpm's, etc). I had a knocking noise when the ac/heat was on and it turned out the heater control valve was stuck and knocking. This was transmitted to my steering wheel as the valve was attached to the firewall.
