GTV 3.0 back board rattle

The back board in my GTV seems to rattle continuously. At 1st I thought it was the speaker cover square thing, which was loose, I removed it and went for a drive but the rattle remains. The previous owner looks to have ahd a sound install in there and i think they added an extra mdf board...and this could be the source of the rattle, or am I wrong? Has anyone else experienced this rattle?

Another issue:

There is what sounds like a power steering pump whine when I turn at low speed. I have not checked the power steering fluid yet, so I'll start there...any other ideas?

Last issue:

The lights are horid! I've changed them to Night Breakers but now the right hand side light cannot goes up and down but it cannot go up enough when I'm turning on that knob type thing with the little round screw at the end that turns into something inside the light. When I did the the inside electronic adjustment was set to high(3) but the light is still too low on the ground, any idea on how to fix this?

Have you checked for snakes?

Lots of things that can rattle in the back of the GTV. The cover for the C-post is not too well secured on my car and can be a source. Strips of foam on strategic places can eliminate vibrations and rattling.
