Head rest rattle fixed!
Finally so far so good. New headrest did nothing. 2nd attempt they replaced both head rest slides 1NE83DX9AD. First time it has been quiet. Here is to hoping it last!!!

Thank you for this!! My passenger headrest rattles with no occupant and it drives me crazy. Even tried wrapping tape around the posts but only helped a little bit.

It's almost like a jiggle type noise? as if its moving around?

Yep, sounded like the tubes shook in the sleeves

Re: Head rest rattle fixed!
yep, mine does this as well but it didn't start until around 8k miles, so I'm not so sure new slides will be a long-term fix unless they were revised. I am at 11k now and have not yet done anything with it.

I swapped mine out and it did seem to help somewhat but keep in mind the part number is only for the one sleeve that has the push button, not both.

I have the same problem and the dearship said they could do nothing, so I put a rolled up paper towel between the plastic and the headrest and it seems to be working. A little hillbilly I know but it's working and not driving me nuts driving down the road anymore.

Others, including me, have used 3M clear packing tape. You wrap it around the metal posts then push the headrest down. It worked for me and you can hardly notice the clear tape.

Nice! I'm glad something worked!
