    confused Rattling passenger seat

    Hi all once again I have a question for the great minds on this site

    When I am in the car by myself, and no one is in the passenger seat if you go over a bump in the road there is what can only be described as a rattling noise coming from the top of the passenger seat, its like a peace of plastic rattling away.
    When there is someone in the seat it does not make this sound, thatís the onky way I can describe it really

    Any ideas anyone

    TIA

    Anyone ever solved this, ive been searching but nothing in google comes up apart from this post which as you can see never got any replies. The only thing ive noticed and it seems to do it on the drivers seat to is theres movement in the seat rails as i rock the back of the seat back and fourth. So on the road its going to be a vibration which gets dead annoying, worse so after i drove a Signum and a Vec hatch at the weekend that interior wise were dead quiet

    Ive had a look on ecat and it looks like the manual seats which i have all have the same lower rails in all vectras as theres no other parts numbers for them.
    @happypostie , during your work on many front seats have you ever come across any with rattling or loose guide rails? Ive not had the time or the good weather to take the passenger seat out to see if the rail and be adjusted. I know its go something to do with this are as i was messing about in @nikroc's car a few weeks ago and his seats had no play in them at all. At least finding low mileage seats rails should be easy enough id hope.
