Gah, skipped right over that earlier. I'll have to check it out. Thanks!

I had that worked on a while ago, the dealer re-aligned and re-installed it. That just solved one of the rattles from the right side. I still have the one that sounds like it is coming from inside the passenger side door.

Might be the screw inside the red reflector. Just unscrew it and put in a rubber washer or some foam. Shuts it up.

I have the same seat issue and have had it in for service for it (and the laundry list of other issues) several times, and the dealer has done nothing.

If I grab the passenger side upper seat back, or there is a passenger it stops. Dealer says there's nothign wrong with the seat though...

I need to take it back in again, the repeat repairs with this car are frustrating.

It took my two visits to get the door check replaced when it was broken and popping loudly. The first time they fill the door panel with grease that a year later now still clouds my mirror and makes it hard to see when driving soemtimes. Ugh.

I had a rattle I thought was coming from the passenger side as well that stopped every time that seat was occupied. Like when a technician rode with me. Turned out to be the HVAC vent under the passenger seat - this is a plastic "s" shaped piece that directs air from below the floor to above.

This is easy to fix with a bit of felt. Don't know of this is your issue, but take a look.

Hi lee50guru,

Send me your information so I can bring this to the attention of your regional customer service manager. In your PM to me, include your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll ensure your information gets into the right hands.

Crystal
