Time to get your hands dirty because asking a question like that, you could get a dozen answers to what it might be but until you find out exactly where the noise is coming from and fix it, your stuck with it. Here's a HOW TO on taking the dash apart. Have fun.

How to: 2007 stereo removal and dash speaker install.

ive taken the A/C Control bezel off many times so it's a sinch. the link CREWZIN gave you is what i used to learn how to take it off. but if you're getting a rattling noise from your master window control switch, it could be loose or it could be something else like the clock. maybe it just needs to be screwed in more. The bezels are very fragile so when tightening the screw, if you have to, dont over tighten them or else you'll break the the part where the screw goes in. Trust me, i had to learn the hard way.
Or it could be one of the screws in one of the vents is loose. Did you recently have anything changed, like the radio or the A/C controls or the Hazard controls?
