I had a slight rattle coming from this area. It was underneath the dashboard on the passenger side, under and behind the glove box.

There's a cover down there that is surprisingly flimsy in the back right corner. I applied a bit of foam insulation to help keep it still and that's seems to have resolved the problem.

Check that its not just the passenger seatbelt buckle rattling against the pillar.
Was a common cause on the E90 for passenger side rattles that were hard to find

There is a product called Dynamat that I used to get rid of a rattle in my E46 once... Much denser than foam...

I am having a passenger side rattle right now but it seems to come from the B pillar or rear passenger door. Of course since I am driving, I can't locate it...and my wife doesnt even notice it when she's in the car. But like most of these things, once I heard it, I couldn't unhear it.

If it's the glovebox I think someone has solved that one.

These 335i's are complete rattle traps! Disgusting when you see how much they cost and bearing in mind it is 2013 not 1960.
