I've just had a rattle (or rather, a loud creaking) that matches this
description cured by my dealer. Came from LH front door/B pillar area. 

They siliconed the door seals and dry lubed the seat belt anchorages and 
moving parts at the same time so can't say definitely which of these was 
the cause, but they definitely cured it! Blissful quality oozing silence.
