How to remove interior of B Post

Car is an E90 Sedan.

I have a small Rattle and I think it is in the inside of the drivers B Post.
Does anyone know how to safely remove it?

The Rattle sounds like there is a Small Screw Driver sitting at the bottom.
I could be wrong, but after an year of this rattle, I want it gone.

Thanks in Advance.

I have one in my passenger side b-pillar, rear deck (now silenced), sunroof (can't figure this one out), center dash (especially when cold), and dome light (can't figure this one out). I've felt taped everything. Drives me nuts. Never had a car that rattled so much in my life. Even my '87 Camaro was more solid in terms of rattles believe it or not when I had it in 1998.

I need to get into the b-pillar too.

I believe you start low and remove the hard plastic lower B pillar from the ground up, then the fabric upper part of the B pillar.

You may even have to remove some of the horizontal hard plastic trim in the door openings to even get started on the lower B pillar.

Thanks Mike for the starting point.

AgentPhish, will let you know what I find.
Just an FYI, I know the cold start vibration... And I get it as I stop at a red light.

But if you are getting it in the sunroof and dome light.
Have you looked into wheel balancing and a wheel balancing.
