Rattle in back seat

There has been a really annoying rattle coming out of the backseat area in my 06 2dr. I can not figure out what it is but is definitely is coming from behind me while driving. Any ideas? It sounds like something is loose or something. Only rattles when it is little bumpy.

Check all your panels and make sure they are all in the right spot.
One of mine popped out somehow about the little window on the drivers side.

I think it was from the boom boom in my trunk

Have checked that and doesn't seem to be that. Sounds like it is coming from the wheel wells

My little covers to the baby seat anchors used to rattle, I put a drop of epoxy inside them to lock them shut and that fixed the rattle I had from the sub. Now I have a high pitched squeak. lol

Did you get your car used?
I had a pen in my car (from the first owner) that would vibrate. I spent two years wondering what in my bumper that was vibrating, then one day getting the jack out of my trunk I saw this old, crusty (yeah it was crusty) pen in the dent between the well and the back of the car. There was also a note to be excused from gym class and a lip gloss in by the spare lol

lmao. Yeah mine was used but I was basically the 1st owner. It was bought by a dealer and had sat in the lot for a year or 2. He said I was 1st owner. There was nothing under my seats or anything. Im thinking about taking the panels off and seeing if there is anything there, dont think there is but its worth a try, if thats not it than i may take off the black panels on the wheel wells off and see if anything is vibrating in there
