It was a loose/stretched parking brake cable both times. The way to tell is to pull up on the parking brake handle until you take the slack out and drive over some bumps that you know causes the rattle. It's easy to fix. Just pull the parking brake handle boot loose and tighten the two nuts at the back of the handle. There's a lock nut that needs to be loosened first, but you'll figure it out. :o)
