I have a rattle in my passenger seat in the ute that is driving me nuts. It's located on the console side and I have no idea what it may be as I'm not sure of how to remove the plastic shroud that is covering everything up.
Any ideas on how to remove this?
I find it so annoying that my XR8 leather sports seat and the general passenger side is rattley and my old 99 AU is tight as a drum.
do a search for another thread on this one. This problem was solved by someone else a coupla months ago. From memory it was simple too.

I posted these words of wisdom in the earlier thread, came to me via a Ford engineer ;
"....re rattle in passenger seat on utes. The issue is caused by a resonant "shake" that is different to sedans and the noise is from the gear teeth on the back adjuster. That is, the seat is flopping back and forward on the gear teeth, put a pasenger in or some other load on the seat back and it goes away. The usual "fix" is to simply lay the seatback back a bit further to put some preload on the gear teeth..... "
Try removing the inner cover that hides the bolt which holds the seat back in place. Under this you'll see a slotted push on washer. Give this a lube, spray really gets in, and make sure its on properly.

Great but where do I start - do you mean the cover on the console side? IF so how does it come off?
