I'm not sure if it's just too flexible of a rod holding the front window mesh shade or what but at times it rattles quite a bit. I know to lower it slightly and that usually helps but has anyone taken measures to fix that rattling of the shade?

Is it rattling against something, or is it it the rod itself?

I have found using silicone spray with a straw quiets things down and makes the screen go up and down easier. Other than that I have not ventured into taking it apart.

Yes I have, take the soft side of Velcro and cut 4 5 inch strips, bring your shades down to driving position and center the 4 strips in the front and back side of the shades within the tract.

Are you placing the strip inside the track?

Here you go, note that my strips are not 5 inches, I recommend longer so you have more range to open or close the shades with the lower rod of the shades between the Velcro

If you’re not using the shade while you were driving I have seen that most people simply wrote a bungee strap around it. That seems to hold it tight. Sometimes you can add additional mounting brackets to support the head rail. Finally if there is an adjustment on the upper and lower limit settings you can adjust the upper limit to where the rail is all the way to the top and snug against the head rail. That should keep it from moving as well. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other window covering issues or needs.

Sometimes when I hit the bump in the road just right, this shade makes a loud clack noise and scares me for a second until I remember what the noise is. Think I will do as the poster suggested and fix it so it does not do it as bad. Think the DS side shade also does a number too.
