New rattle from dash console

Been driving the car daily for a while, noticed a new rattle from behind the dashboard gauge console. It sounds like a marble in plastic box. I can reproduce it by pounding on the dashboard. Any ideas? How hard is it to remove the dash air vents, stereo and/or the gauge console so I can look back there?

It's probably something rolling around in there, maybe a mounting clip anyway removing the dash really isn't hard it seems a lot tougher than it really is. I did mine a few weeks ago to add an ipod cable and had I just done it properly from the start I probably would have had it done in 2 hours. These instructions are excellent
