Headliner rattle

On a recent trip to Baja we began to hear a rattle coming from the headliner near the driver's sun visor while driving on a (bad) dirt road. The rattle is quite pronounced and now the object (whatever it is) can even be heard rolling back and forth during acceleration and braking. Whatever it is seems to be bigger than a nut, but nothing appears to be loose from the outside (i.e., neither the sun visor nor the sun-roof flashing on that side), and I don't know how to gain access to that area so that I can just look inside.

I took the jeep to the best of the four dealers in my area, but it's been there for two days and I'm beginning to think they're either not trying or it's beyond their ability.

Has anyone else had a similar problem?

Can anyone point me to a diagram of that area which would help me figure out what might have come loose?

Thanks!

Jim

Maybe one of the Jeep installers left his screwdriver in there??
