Why does the door of my car rattle?

I've taken my 19-plate Mercedes-Benz C-Class Convertible to be looked at because the passenger door rattles a lot. I was told it was just the sound that convertibles make. What is your opinion, I think that's rubbish and intend to go back in but would like your thoughts.

Is the rattle coming from within the door? If so, I imagine one of the internal clips has broken or come loose. In this case, the whole door card will need to be removed and refitted with new clips.
