Rattling Window Shade

Has anybody figured out how to prevent the front window shade from rattling?

The only time mine have ever rattled was when the nut backed off of a roller end screw (the nut was inside the roller rattling). I learned the hard way that eventually the screw will back out and the roller will fall. Are all the attachment screws and the roller end screws tight?

My entry shade assembly is the first thing that rattles when the road has a rough spot. I can not find anything loose, except the front end of the rolls move up and down in the black bracket. If I wedge a coozy between the white roll and the valance, it helps, but does not eliminate the rattle. It is on the top of my PDI list.

Yes, the brackets don't hold the shades tight. What I did was take a large washer with a wood screw and overlap half the washer, on the shade track, on each side. Holds the shade tight and no more rattle.
Best I could do for pictures.
Mine is on a 2017 earlier years had different brackets and I'm not sure what yr they went to the current type. I liked the old style better, but factory used self tapping screws that didn't hold so you needed to put in larger wood screws.

Bet what chuck said will fix it I was wondering where the heck is that rattle we had to do the same the screws to the roof are loose. You can always add more also right through the brackets. or just like chuck stated add larger screws in the same holes even with self tappers it would take 2 minutes each get a extension. Easy -peasy and no more rattles you can also check the ends where they hold the rollers in they can rattle too drive a small screw or padding in there to quiet them I think I rolled up duct tape for that and jammed it in the small space, I hate rattles and cab noise
