CD Drive rattle

I have an Inspiron 7000 and a recurring problem that Dell haven't fixed. When I insert a CD and it begins to spin, the drive emits a loud rattle. This is stopped by putting my finger on the drive door, placing a piece of paper just above the drive door and top of the CD-Rom casing or by pressing on the case above the drive (to the left of the touchpad). I've sent the notebook off to Dell 3 times now and it always comes back with the same problem, even though they've replaced the drive. Has anyone had similar problems at all? It sounds to me like the drive is fine, and the case is at fault.

I also have an Inspiron 7000, and it does the same thing, intermittently. I had always thought it was because I had not seated my CD or DVD correctly, because popping it out, fiddling with seating the CD and then closing it again usually got rid of the problem. But I agree, it's probably the case.
