Clunk in driver's seat when turning left

On my 2014 overland, when I turn left I feel and hear something in the seatback, near the lumbar area, clunk. It seems like something is sliding back and forth. Once you turn left and it makes the noise, you have to turn right to reset it. Then next time you turn left it will make the noise again. The dealer pulled the seat back and said they added some foam to prevent the noise. It didn't help. It seems ridiculous for the seat to make noise. Anybody else have this problem? I seems like maybe the power lumbar has something loose or broken.

x2. I have the same issue, perhaps not a clunk but more of a click.

No luck for me getting it fixed. I brought it back and all they did was put a new seat back on the seat, that they messed up from the first attempt. It feels to me like the motor that moves the seat back and forth is moving. Not sure if that is something they can get to or not without dismantling the whole seat.

I get a clunk from the seat when i turn right.I think it is coming from the plastic cover over the side of the seat.If i push it in towards the seat when i turn it stops the noise...Did you get yours fixed yet?What was it?

Re: Clunk in driver's seat when turning left

No, I tried a couple times to get it fixed. I have given up for now. Mine is definitely something heavy moving around. It sounds like it is in lower part of the seat back or maybe at the hinge point. I suspect the motor that moves the seat is moving, or the brushes in the motor itself are moving back and forth.

I had this before. Dealership took a look and pulled some parts of the seat out, but it hasn't returned.

Re: Clunk in driver's seat when turning left

Do you have your lumbar cranked out all the way and higher up the seat? I was moving mine up higher on my back and it made a pop or clunk when I shifted my weight in the seat. If that's the case you might wanna back off the lumbar a bit. Just a thought.
