Very annoying to be reminded about it every time I stop or start.
-come to a stoplight- seat blips forward. -light turns green- seat blips backwards...

Hey folks,

If you're not having any luck identifying the source of the looseness or rattle, having your dealer check it out is always a good option.

Hi Minchkin,

I just did a quick run-through of the parts website and couldn't find this specific grommet. You may want to contact the parts department of your local dealership; at the very least they could provide you with the correct part number.

As always, if anyone has any additional questions or concerns, feel free to send a PM in my direction.
