It's only the 2015's in the VIN Range of 501001-550001 Manufactured in Halewood; Not all have the problem and they have already corrected the issue.
I am in this range - just, and dont have the rattle :)

I guess not all cars were impacted

This probably was explained somewhere here in the forum, but I could not find anything.

Thanks!
Here is the ticking rattle sound I recorded over two months ago. The background road noise is loud, but you can identify the "ticking" noise easily.

I think JLR knew of this problem quite early on as my DS has welds on the B pillars but it has never been in for the fix so must have been done at the factory

Much appreciated! it is really maddening -- luckily the occasional creak I hear on mine is not even close to the B-pillar rattle

Thank you to Benjs for taking the time to record and post the noise. I've now provided your video and your solution to my dealership here in the United States. This is all news to them. I share the same noise that you were fighting and after four visits to my dealership they were still searching for an answer. I'm now waiting for them to respond to the information that I provided due to your hard work. Thank you for sharing.

We Were lucky enough to have are car rejected because of the above fault.
It amazes me that there is over 50,000 cars with this fault. It also amazes me of all the people that say mine hasnt got the rattle!
However your car has the fault!!!!
Have you ever wondered what will happen if your car is in an accident!
Have you ever wondered what will happen if your car ends up on its roof?
The vehicle exterminator that rejected are car was appalled when I turned around on a verge off road and the whole car twisted and moved!
The fact is all your cars need a repair on safety grounds and it amazes me why Land Rover haven't recalled them all before somebody is hurt!
I wish everyone with the best of Luck as Land Rovers Dealers along with Land Rover are useless!
