Right Front Seat Rattle

Hi guys,

I've got a rattle seemingly coming from my right-front seat, and I was wondering if any of you might have an idea as to what it could be. I haven't gone there and fiddled with every part I can find yet, but I wanted to know if I could avoid that altogether if someone knows what that could be specifically.

The symptoms of the rattle are as follows. It seems only to happen over 100KH/h (~ 60 MPH), and only when nobody is sitting in the right front seat. I've fiddled a bit with the parts I can touch easily as I go along, but at that speed, I just can't start messing with everything there is on and around the seat. From what I can hear though, it's definitely from the seat or under the seat, as opposed to door trim or dash trim. The noise itself is a bit hard to describe. It's a sort of cracking noise, perhaps two plastic pieces rubbing together at sharp angles or something like that. It'll try to see if it's possible to record it. The annoying thing is that I can't actually troubleshoot it myself as it's happening, I'd need to get someone in the back seat to fiddle with it :(

Anyone go ideas or similar experiences?
