147 Mysterious rattle

I've noticed a strange rattle on my 5 door 2004 147 lately.

Its a rattle that seems to come from somewhere on the center console. Its not really loud, and it sounds like something swinging inside the console and slightly hitting the plastic. I find it impossible to pinpoint the exact location. It's getting a little worse everytime, but still its a minor sound.

It only happens when going over slight bumps. The weird thing is it doesn't happen on bigger potholes and bumps. Only on slight ones. It doesn't happen on braking or accelerating.

Any ideas on where to start looking?

Had some time today and checked wipers/scuttle drains etc, and fuse box covers and all were ok. Glovebox seems also ok.

Any suggestions for what else to look for? The sound sounds like a loose, hard wire moving around inside the dashboard and hitting the plastic subtly.
