Re: AWFUL rattle under seat or center console.

I love my jeep BUT...it rattles more than any new ride I've ever had. It's really disappointing to spend 45,000+ and have so many rattles.

Re: AWFUL rattle under seat or center console.

SO............ the rattle went away for about a week - and came back immediately after a carwash. Come to think of it, the first time was right after a carwash as well.

Its definitely something to do with the front passenger seat - but what? And what do they do at the carwash to cause it? They *do* move the seat, but what about moving the seat causes this?

Could be the seat belt receiver, rattling against te centre console. Move it forward, worked for me.

Did you get this fixed? I have it as well. It goes away when reining left or right but on the freeway its a constant squeak.

Re: AWFUL rattle under seat or center console.

Never noticed this post earlier, but I had something very similar. It was not a rattle but more like a clicking. Ended up being the side of the leather seat (passenger side) rubbing against the center console. Was as extremely annoying constant clicking noise but went away when a passenger was in the seat. Ended up moving the seat back a few inches so it didnt rub on the center console and it went away.

Sounds very similar to what I experienced. Seems to come back every now and then (normally after a passenger moves the seat), but goes away as soon as i move the seat fwd/back or up/down.
