Headrest Rattle

Has anyone experienced a headrest rattle in the passenger side headrest? the dealer replaced it but it's still rattling. driving back from SC last night (3 hours) i pulled over and tried to remove the headrest. it would not come out. put a book under the headrest that didn't work. it's driving me nuts.

suggestions?

Re: Headrest Rattle

Nothing in the head rest, but got one in my panoroof above the passengers side rear door that's making ME crazy ha ha.

Found one of the rivets to appear loose in the roof rail above the same spot. Wondering if that could be it?

Good luck. I know they're small "quality control" issues, but when everything else is good, these little things can make you NUTS. Perhaps we should be glad that's all we have to worry about.

Be careful when removing - these are active headrests and I think there is an electric wire in one of the posts.

Re: Headrest Rattle

I have a bit of a rattle in the passenger headrest, haven't figured out how to fix it yet besides resting my hand on it.... or turning the radio up. There seems to be a bit of a rattle in the passenger door developing, as if something was left in one of the cup holders.

Yes. Picked up from dealership yesterday. I'm now sure what they did it's not rattling, yet.
Fortunately the service tech drove it and heard the rattle so that was a plus.
I uploaded the service ticket.
