At $140, you oughta be expecting a excellent copy, that doesn't rattle.

I'd recommend returning it.

And if you don't understand the comment about marking the position of part of the lens before disassembling it to maintain the focus, I'd recommend a bit more reading before you take any lenses apart. And expect to never put the first one back together.
