buzz along trasmission tunnel cover passenger side

If you're sitting in the passenger seat, over certain roads, there is a harmonic that causes the plastic cover (basically the large wrap of the transmission tunnel) right by your left knee to buzz (actually at the bottom where it meets the carpet but still by your left knee).

Super simple to stop it, just touch it, or lean something against it, but what is inside? Think of this as right behind inside the right cup holder in front of the dash.

Is there a way to remove this panel without taking apart the interior to tighten/secure what's buzzing inside?

Had a similar sound but ended up being just a loose screw in the front underbody plastic panel, there's like a millions screws holding it in lol.

no doubt it's something similar - just didn't know if there is a good way to access it. Something better than removing the entire center console.

I think that will help - I think you can just pop off the shifter bezel and then I can get behind the panel. Any special tools required to pop off the trim? doesn't say in the thread.
