The shift knob has been known to cause a rattling sound because of its design. It's pressure fit to the shaft instead of threaded. Just pull the knob off and run a piece of electrical tape up one side of the shaft, over the top, and down the other. Press the knob tightly into place -- and you'll be all set. I did this when installing my B&M -- and it has worked like a charm. Can't remember if you have to pull the console cover or not. Either way, it's a simple and effective fix.

You will need to pop the console cover off, as the knob and boot come off as a single assy.

The rattle is very common, and very annoying. I haven't gotten arounf to fixing the damned thing yet, but will soon make the time.
