Found the Rattle

So I found the freakin Rattle Noise that's been driving me crazy for weeks ! There is no threaded insert in the back of one of my Door Surrounds.
Doesn't appear that there was ever one in there from the factory.
The PO had Siliconed the knob in so it wouldn't come out or rattle but came loose. The hole is smaller than all the others and is not threaded/or the insert was never put in.

WTF ? Lol
Trying to find an insert has been a joke. Going to have to drill it out and find some sort if threaded sleeve To jam in there.
