    Your passenger SEAT rattles, or the airbag compartment in front of it does?

    i had the same issue. ...this is how i fixed it.

    i noticed that the channels that the seat slides back and forth in were, for a lack of a better term, loose.

    the channel looks like a U. imagine the arms of the U being bent outwards looking something like a V. this was causing the seat to not fit snug in the channel ..all i did was take some c clamps and bend the top part of the channel back in to where it looked like a U again instead of a V.

    that fixed my issue. ..yours may be due to something completely different.

    Thanks for the clue. I thought the rattle was in my dash but it was the passenger seat. I used 4" c clamps to tighten up the channels. Looks like the problem is solved. GW
