Re: What's under my back seat?

I took a look under my seat and I do not have anything at all like that under there. I do have a 2014 though, so maybe that's why.

Re: What's under my back seat?

Thanks for looking. It'll be interesting to see what my dealer says.

Re: What's under my back seat?

I took my Jeep to the dealer this morning, & asked them if they could tell me what was under my back seat. Both the service manager & a mechanic couldn't tell me what the disk is. They checked the parts list for the seat, floor & carpeting and couldn't find a reference to the disk. They also checked other GC's on the lot, including a 2012, and none had the disk. They suggested it could have been a loose part that mistakenly got attached to the carpeting during assembly at the factory.

We're going to wait until I bring the Jeep in for the brake booster replacement (TSB) and they'll have a mechanic see if the disk can be removed without damaging the carpet.

The mystery continues ...

Re: What's under my back seat?

I loosened a back seat mounting bolt & easily pulled the mystery part out from under one of the seat mounting brackets.

Here's what the part looks like;



It's called an Insulatio-Side Panel, Mopar Part No 5519422A.

The next question is where does this panel belong? I'm hoping it was replaced by a speaker (or something), but it'll be nice to know if the part is needed somewhere else on the Jeep.

Re: What's under my back seat?

I wonder if with the part # they can pull it up on a parts diagram that would show where it belongs?

Maybe Milous has access to something.

Re: What's under my back seat?

Mystery solved!

Checked the parts manual at my dealer today. The Insulatio-Side Panel is a plug for the subwoofer speaker opening located in the right side quarter panel in the cargo area.

I'm guessing that when the plug was removed for the subwoofer installation, the assembler threw the plug in the back seat area before the seat was installed. When back seat was bolted in, the assembler didn't see the plug & bolted the seat right over it.
