The best thing I have found is weather stripping/speaker sealer. it is foam with glue on it, when you put the plastic bits together it stops them moving/touching which is where the sound comes from. IF you know what is rattling then it will stop it. Its brilliant.

Get a long roll for about 10 bucks at bunnings etc. Its usually used for doors to keep out drafts and water from the gaps.
