2015 GC Center Console Rattle

I have noticed a small intermittent rattle coming from the center console (it's not sunglasses).

I did narrow it down to the passenger seat touching the console. Anyone's seat also touch the console?

Easy fix... Take some lumbar support out of the passenger seat. Had the same issue and found the fix on this forum but had to search around a bit. When lumbar is set quite high it makes the seat wider as it pushes out and will rub on the center counsole.

I have moved the seat around and the lumber is retracted all the way into the seat. It's not a huge deal but still touches.

Re: 2015 GC Center Console Rattle

Thanks for posting this issue and remedy.

Before finding this post, I applied some leather conditioner to that side of the support and it seemed to work. (Perhaps it acted as a lubricant?). I moved my lumbar and support around yesterday evening. It still touches but not as much. Thanks again.

Yes sir!

That is a good idea, I was thinking some conditioner might help it. I also adjusted the seat more this morning and was able to keep it from touching but I feel like it will hit again after someone sits in the passenger seat.

Dealer told me that was just a side effect of the lumbar support being high. Grr

Hope the leather conditioner fixes it finally for you!

Good post, mine does the same thing. I will give the Lumbar support thing a shot.

Re: 2015 GC Center Console Rattle

I loosened the 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor and moved the seat away from the console. Didn't move much, but enough to clear the console.
