Default How to cure window handle rattling?

Just upgraded my sound system, but now whenever there is any bass, the window handle's knob vibrates. I need to fix it without stopping it from rotating. Help please?

Mine rattles too but it does that even with the stock sound system... I was just going to spray some WD40 to see if it would lube it up and keep if from doing it anymore.
