Weird noise in cab / ticking noise after oil change

I have a weird rattle type noise inside the cab that started a few weeks ago out of nowhere. Prior to this I had never heard any rattles inside the cab. I have posted the youtube link to the video I took last week of the noise. This turned into a 3 day ordeal with the truck @ the dealer. All the info is posted in the detail portion of the video. I was curious if anyone else had experienced a similar noise and if so what, if anything, was done to resolve it.

Also, while the truck was @ the dealer I had them do an oil change. Today I went to get in the truck after a remote start and heard a ticking noise coming from the drivers side wheel well. Did a search and it looks like I'm not the first person to experience the infamous ticking. Obviously Ford isn't going to do anything to resolve this so is it something that goes away after a while or should I plan on getting used to it.

Thanks in advance for any feedback

and that noise in the cab sounds to me like a door is rubbing up against the cab check all your door seals and check ur the latch on the door for any marks rubbing etc . on my truck the driver side rear door the seal game unglued and was drooped down a bit just enough to make a nasty noise like what ur experiencing

Thanks for the reply!

Typewriter tick is what i saw it referred to when I searched up on it. This is my first diesel so I'm still learning. Where exactly in the engine does the noise come from and why do you hear it only after an oil change?

I will look around the door seals tomorrow and see if I find anything. You would think after being at the dealer for 3 days they would catch it if it were just that but you never know with some of the dealers!
