Annoying Rattling / Vibration - Interior

My 2010 Cobalt XFE is beginning to drive me insane with this annoying and persistent rattling / vibration that seems to be coming from the glove box area...Nothing in the glove box is causing this noise, but something seems to be loose near that part of the dashboard & I can't figure out what it is....Any ideas from anyone that may have experienced this problem ? The car gets great MPG and I like it a lot, save for this noise which is making me crazy since I drive this car 115 miles every day !

Its normal, every cobalt does this. Just turn your music up and ignore it.

I have to go thru the car every time the kids go somewhere with me. They leave coins and toys everywhere that drive me nuts when they rattle. Aside from that, I don't have any rattles yet.

Mine's in the steering column, I take it in about every 9 months and they "fix" it (and I'll continue to do so until the warranty runs out). They told me Chevy never redesigned the rattling part, so it's just getting replaced with the same part each time.
