Passenger Seat Rattle

Hello All,

Sorry if this is a re-post of a topic that has been discussed, however, I am curious if anyone has experienced an irritating rattle in the passenger seat.

I cannot pin point the location where it is coming from; it has become quite unnerving.

Thank you.

Tom

Mine is in the headrest. Slated to be replaced soon. When you hear it, check your headrest as it inserts into the seat.

I actually think that is where my rattle is coming from as well, the more I investigate.
Are they replacing your headrest as a cure to this problem?

Re: Passenger Seat Rattle

also have had this rattle... though it's far less annoying than the nearly-constant rattle coming from the back liftgate. anyone experienced THAT?
