    Has anyone else experienced their passenger front seat rattling? and if so is there a fix for it?
    When i put pressure on the top of the seat it doesn't rattle, but when i let go a few seconds later it will rattle.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yep mine too I think it has something to do with the fold down part so you can turn your seat back into "table top". I am thinking about taking it apart to see if anything is loose

    Yes. My 2011 AC 4x4 has this rattle. I posted the same question a few weeks ago, and a couple of folks told me that it was "normal". It is very annoying on the rough back roads that I live on. The rattle appears to be coming from the seat back, as it rocks forwards and back violently. I intend to look at the ratchet mechanism and see if I can pad the locking tab with rubber tubing or something similar.
    The truck is fine with a passenger.

    Guess I've been lucky. My 08 access cab has the fold flat passenger seat & is very quiet so far. Hope I didn't just jinx myself.... The only rattling I get on the passenger side is the seatbelt buckle knocking against the side of the access cab door when there is no passenger.

    bumping this old thread.

    Anybody figure this out yet?

    mine just started to rattle a lot...It's def. the seat back.
    I do not have the fold flat seat.

    No problem with someone in the seat, but if just me
    the seat back is really loose...i've laid the seat all the way
    back so it's touching the ACab seat thing.
    That keeps it from rattling so much, still there but better.

    It just started, normal HWY driving, no wheeling recently?

    Thanks,
    PC
