Rattling coming from B pillar?

@XLR82XS,

Did that fix the issue? No more buzzing/rattles?

Ski
No it did not fix the noise 100%. Clicking still present but very faint and you have to hold you ear against the B-pillar to hear it with silence in the cabin.
Beyond that there were a couple highway-speed noises pinpointed by a mobile tech today. Loose panel at the rear just behind the bumper. Tech installed foam in that area plus at the plastic underneath both rocker panels.
 
*5/5/20 UPDATE* Car was at SC for axle clicking. B-pillar clicking/fluttering been getting progressively worse over the last couple months including rattle from the bottom of the panel over rough pavement ~40-50mph. It's now heard at lower speeds where before it was highway only (70+mph). SC telling me they can't hear anything and I'm fed up. The car literally has no other rattling issues. I plan to take it apart and use foam tape, etc... and see how that does. Very upsetting .......
 
Folks, I have had a buzzing noise coming from driver side B-pillar (maybe passenger side as well now after 6k miles). Does not always happen and really depend on road surface and frequency that gets transferred from tire -> suspension -> frame -> trim?. I did some felt tape and applied some trim dressing 3 weeks ago and now the buzz is coming back...will try a more durable dressing this time. Will update back if I am successful on resolving the issue :)
 
Would you be able to post a couple photos from your fix? Or at least of the area?

TIA!

Not my car but same idea. I ran the foam tape up higher until the gap tightened about the height of where the camera/repeater is.
