It could be just a bracket...when metal heats up it expands..you could have just a simple loose piece of bracket...remember..if it ain't broke don't fix it....I had a pickup that did the same thing too me..drove me nuts..I found a couple pennies in the glove box that were making the noise..always check the simple things first
