Took my 17 Disco Sport in for B-Pillar rattle on driver and passenger side.
Currently at a body shop where they'll be placing a few welds on the problem area.
Service tech said that LR is classifying it as a refinement issue. Happens during certain temperatures.

Picked up my 2017 just a few weeks ago and I have the rattle on the passenger side as well. Looks like non of us can escape this.

I had what I thought was the rattle on the passenger side, only to discover that it was the buckle for the passenger seat belt that got hung up in a certain position and rattled on the frame

Just to update this post as I have been dealing with this rattle on my Disco Sport for some time now. I recently solved this issue by simply removing the upper cover of the B pillar (plastic one where the seatbelt goes into). I then used a can of expanding foam insulation (Great Stuff expanding foam sealant} and inserted the hose into the center opening where the plastic piece clips in...I aimed the hose up towards the roof and put in about 3/4 of the can moving around aiming forward back and middle of the top of the pillar..I then saw the foam fill to the area where I inserted the hose as it expanded. Then I moved and put the remaining can in the center hole just below that upper hose and emptied the can into it. I applied duct tap over the holes as it was trying to push out as it expanded. I let it sit overnight and BOOM!!! No more noise! My Disco for the first time doesn't make a sound driving down my rough road.

Hi - just picked up my DS SE today and am facing the door rattle on both sides. Not sure if I might get any joy out of the dealer as I bought on the LR approved used scheme with 2 years warranty.

Just a question for you regarding your foam fix, are there not airbags in that area? My vehicle has a plastic cover on each side just above the seat belt entry point with AIRBAG written on.

Surely squirting foam in would mess up the airbags? Or did I misunderstand?

Many thanks - advice appreciated.

A member on the UK site fixed his rattle by inserting a paper receipt under the plastic cover. The first cars produced had a fastener smaller than the hole and the problem was remedied. But the problem has become an urban myth

Does anybody know how to remove the glossy black plastic trim on the outside of the front doors? The part which runs up the side of the window near the B pillar. If I press on mine from the outside there is clear movement and a ticking sound, I am pretty sure this is contributing to my problem, and I would like to remove it to investigate further and maybe add some padding underneath, but I can't see any way of removing it and don't want to force it without understanding how it fits on. Advice much appreciated.
