Rattle/creak from under front passenger seat
I have a 2012 Overland. Recently something under the front passenger seat has started creaking or rattling. It sounds like it is coming from the same place that makes the "click" when you turn on the heated seats or steering wheel, and the noise is actually similar to that click. However, it is much more frequent. The smallest little bump in the road or roughness will set it off, so that it is actually making the noise every few seconds (or more often) when driving around town. It is driving me crazy.

It seems like operating the seat controls / moving the seat up/down/forward/back/etc. resolves it for a few minutes, but it inevitably comes back. I have looked under the seat and searched for loose items, connectors, etc. but can't find anything - it all looks pretty solid.

Unfortunately I cannot get the noise to occur while the vehicle is stationary, which makes it difficult to search for the origin. Any ideas?

My driver's seat does the same thing. It's driving me nuts and I can't figure out how to fix it.
