Lately I've been hearing a rattle at idle, sort of a plasticy sounding rattle coming from the area behind the glove box or right front wheel. Apply a little throttle and it goes away. I don't hear it under the hood. I was worried about a CV issue or something, but no other symptoms besides the rattle at idol. Doesn't sound metallic, almost like something is loose but goes away under load. Any ideas?

Maybe a loose passenger side sound absorber panel.

To pin down interior pieces, try pressing against the various trim pieces to see if you can make the sound stop.
