Rattling from rear dome light

Anyone experience this? I've had it almost since I got the car but I think it's starting to get worse, or at least I'm not able to put up with it anymore.

I can kind of get it to stop rattling temporarily if I press the plastic light housing up, but eventually after going over a few bumpy roads and whatnot the plastic loosens, I guess, and starts rattling again. Any good solutions to this?

My first 1er did this as well. Drove me crazy after a while. Never solved the problem but eventually traded the car for my current 135i. Sorry... I know that doesn't help you but at least you're not alone. I'm sure there's more with the same problem.

I have same issue. Haven't tried to fix it yet. Would love to hear if there is a solution.

Wow - thought I was the only one and hadn't bothered searching. Just seems that the entire thing isn't fastened very well to the roof structure. Never pulled off the headliner to see what can be done. Right now mine has stopped rattling, I must've banged it around/shifted it at some point and it's holding up.

On the other hand, I do have the dreaded A pillar rattle and a super annoying squeak from somewhere behind the cluster when going over dips that are making me crazy...

sigh...
