Passenger side front seat back rattle. Suggestions how to fix?

I have the leather bucket seats in my Ranger. For the past year or so, either my passenger seat in the front has started rattling or I just started to notice around a year ago. Either way, it's only the seat back, not the entire seat assembly. And it only happens when the seat is empty. Does anyone know of a way to eliminate or at least lessen the rattle? It's really annoying.

take it to an upholstery shop, have them pull the covers/foam and look for something broken. i do this a lot, but more so with rattles coming from sunroof/headliners.

If there were bolts I could see and/or access where the seat back mounts to the seat bottom, I would. It's not the bolts holding the seat to the floor. Those are tight. It's coming from the seat back. When I go over bumps, If I lightly put my hand on the passenger seat back when empty, the rattle stops. No matter how hard I press on the seat bottom, it doesn't minimize the rattle.

That's not a bad idea. Might be a while before I can get around to doing that though.

I am interested to hear your findings. The back of the passenger seat of my 02 does this as well. I usually just ignore it, lol.
