Perhaps all the new GC on that lot have rattles around the wheels and grill, but either you have the ears of a Fennec fox or something is wrong with that lot.
You can usually stop rattles with a bit of strategically placed glue/adhesive. Don't use an epoxy or something hard to break loose as if the trim ever needed to be removed and put back intact, you could affect that.
A flexible adhesive works better, as it can absorb vibration without coming loose.
Be careful using silicone adhesives near anything electrical.
Contact cement works, but only if you can get it in behind where you can't see it.
"Goop" has a clear adhesive that is not ultra fastening...
I've "de-rattled" an old ZJ using contact cement and goop, using bamboo sticks to get it into the gapped areas.... and a bit of cleaner for the inevitable oops. Cover the areas around where you are working if you go the adhesive route.
