passenger seat raddle

Does anyone else have a passenger seat that rattles when you go over bumps. Anyways mines raddles at the connection of the back rest. Pretty much theres some slop where it can move front to back about 1/4 inch and it uses that to make a very annoying noise when I go over bumps.

yes mine does it nonstop sometimes.

I think every panel rattles in my truck though so I just crank the radio so I cant hear them.

It's something loose where the seat back mounts into the base. I can move the top portion back and forth about an inch which causes a rattle.

Other than that there aren't too many rattles. Dynamat has fixed my window cranks and other random door rattles.

Works quite well dont it. Too bad it chewed a hole into the seat.

I found if i put the seat back as far as it will go (one click behind the regular place) you can push it all the way back to the window which keeps it from rattling.

Shoot i replaced my whole truck, but my chevy does it also. lol

I normally throw my backpack, jacket, and books from school in the passenger seat, and have it so most of the weight is pushing against the seat back. That seems to help some most of the time.
