My 2014 is starting to have a rattle on the passenger's side. I'll have to check out your tweeter solution, modach. Just like my 2013, the rattles started to get worse around the 3,000 mile mark. I guess the duct tape that holds together the innards of the car start to peel off around that point ;)

I had a rattle from the front passenger side, that I though was coming from the door.  It turned out that the wife had not clipped the sun visor back in when she put it back and that is what caused the rattle.

I get a buzz occasionally from the b pillar, but not sure what it is since it happens so little that I forget about it.  I get an occasional buzz from the passenger door when certain music plays, could be the tweeter mentioned above.  Other than that annoying thump that is either a bad tire or a bad bearing, the car is remarkably quiet. In fact there are times I cant tell if its EV or ICE at highway speeds.

Ive had the pillar rattles into the shop 3 times. They first thought it was the seatbelt assembly and it still rattled soon after. Then they re-welded some points in the drivers side and rattle was gone again. (This was only because it was winter and the car interior shrunk up enough to erase the rattle). It came back as soon as the weather started getting warm.

The rattle occurs where the black and white plastic pieces on the pillar come together. If you press your hand on this area the rattle will stop. The dealership put some rubber between the trim.

I had this pillar rattle in my 2013. I would put a small hand towel folded in half in between the rear driver's side door and the pillar (so it's just inside the door and not sticking out on the outside) and close the door on it. This would stop the rattle for a while, until the towel became loose, at which point I'd have to do it all over again. Ford needs to fix this problem since it seems to be happening to more than a few people.

I recommend put there baby talc (Johnson or similar) onto the door`s rubber seal and treat the same way the car body door rubbers too. 1 minute of work and the car will be noiseless.
