SABELT SEAT RATTLE.....PLEASE HELP.
« on: September 02, 2013, 09:03:15 pm »
Hi people. Im not sure if this is a common problem but the passenger side seat rattles when going over bumpy roads which is pretty much everywhere and all the time   :-[
It seems like the runners are rattling and not all of the seat fixing and mounting points.

Any help please.......

    My drivers seat rattled and it sounded as if something was loose inside. After a while a screw fell out. I took the side panels off to see if I could see where it came from but no joy. Anyone know how to get the backs off?

    Mine had a loose screw in the back of the drivers seat..

    I got the Mrs to drive the car while I sat in the back trying to locate the sound. I felt a bit daft but I found out exactly where the noise was coming from.

    Took it to the dealer, told them what was wrong and it was fixed under warranty  :)

    Not sure how they got the back off though..

    Its frustrating but I can live with it. Ive had a butchers around that area and the seat is anchored firmly to the car its just the runners but I cant see anyway of adjusting. may  just be something I gotta live with. However its worth it for the looks and feel of the seat. :)
