Rattle coming from shifter boot

Lately I have been noticing a fairly loud rattle noise coming from the boot of my 04 6speed. The rattle seems to be getting worse, I can stop the rattle by grabbing shifter nob tightly. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what the issue might be, thanks!

Your shifter mounting plate be loose. There should be 4 bolts holding in place. Naturally you will need to remove the boot to gain access.

Lots have had shifter rattle here. Check out the link below.
I had a GM dealer fix mine under warranty. If you have a an extended warranty, that may be the way to go.
