Model 3 Clunking Noise (Loud)

I wanted to see if anyone had answer or either a solution to a problem I've been experiencing with my 2020 Model 3.

After a recent road trip my Model 3, I noticed a clanking noise from the front left driver area when I'm driving on any roads, but it's very loud on bumpy roads. It's sort of a metal clanking sound, like something is loose. I've tried setting a Tesla appointment but I'm in Dallas and the appointments are weeks out. If anyone has a solution or fix that I can do at home (permanent or temporary) that would be amazing.
