Something loose in seat?

Vehicle: 2014 GC 3.0 Ecodiesel Limited w/Lux package

During acceleration and braking it feels like someone is kicking the back of my seat. It's not super hard or anything just like when the guy in the row behind you lets the tray table drop freely on an airplane.

Anyone have any ideas what I might be feeling? I'm tempted to take apart the seat but a bit daunting on a new vehicle.

I also check the hidden compartment under the seat but the electrical junk under there seems to be secure.

Re: Something loose in seat?

Do it feel internal or like the seat itself is rocking? If rocking I might chck the bolts but thats about it - you're under warranty I wouldn't want to go mucking with it

It feels internal, I'll double check the seat bolts anyway, thanks for the idea.

Thannks for the link.

I think you are right, after messing with it a bit more I discoverd if I press into the seat someting pops out of place. Once I let the weight off it pops back and feels like someone is kicking the seat. I'm not sure if it's the back plastic or somethign inside the seat.
