Re: Passenger seat rattle

Hey, I found the fix. The rattle is actually the headrest base grommets making a sound when moving against the leather of the seat. The part where you push the button to adjust the height of the headrest. Simply place a little lubricant (I used vaseline) underneath the bottom of the grommet and the leather seat and you're all set. Promise.

Seriously? I have this happening as well and it seems to be from the headrest. I've never brought it to the dealer because I figured they'd be worthless as usual. Any other feedback from anybody else that brought theirs in to the dealer?

...I. Can't. Believe. It. It works! I actually did a little hillbilly engineering as a quick test, grabbing a couple receipts from my wallet when I jumped in the car this AM for my commute and placed 2 on each side of the head rest posts that go into the seat and the problem went away completely! I think instead of lubricant that might need to be done now and then I might get some felt.

Thanks JGC-convert!
