Several people have had the passenger seat track replaced, right? Can I grease mine? Or do I need to take it apart and bend something, add something soft to the top of the track, etc.? Should I replace it myself?

I'm at 47k miles and I don't think my ESP would cover this since it's considered a "rattle". It's been doing it forever, but I was putting off fixing it until my clutch was replaced (which never happened).

But depending on the seat position, it's not like - oh, I hit a bump *rattle*. It's clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick as I drive down the highway. I moved the passenger seat position while driving today; I was going crazy.

EDIT: I'm going to pinpoint it one weekend this summer and probably do something like this:
2012 FF Ti HB Kona Blue, DCT, Built 5/24/2011, 401A + Ti Handling Package, Parking Technology Package, Winter Package, Moonroof, and MFT w/NAV at v3.8 153k miles and counting...
