Any ideas what it could be? It’s only coming from the driver’s side side intake. I’m guessing it’s probably just a piece of plastic somewhere in there that’s loose and rattling around with the vibration of the engine, but curious if anyone has seen anything similar.

I didn't have this particular issue. However I experienced a similar noise while driving. The AC condenser condensation drain tube (plastic) is up-front underneath the car. Normally it is tied down somehow, but it became loose and started flopping around at highway speeds. Yours does sound like some plastic piece rattling. Good luck.

Man that would drive me crazy. I would start by opening the rear and putting light pressure on certain things and seeing if it stops. If you do that you can at least narrow down the area, then eventually the cause of the rattle.
