A couple of rattles

Had a good look through previous threads doing a search on "windscreen" and "passenger seat" but not found exactly what i'm after.

First one is i have a creeking/ticking which seems to come from right up from, possibly the windscreen as soon as the car is moving and is constant while the car is rolling. From what i have found this points to the either the dash rubbing the screen, the braces under the bonnet (battery compartment) or the 'seal' on the screen. Now the one i'm thinking of opting for is to replace the foam rubber cord and outser seal for the screen. I have the part numbers of 996 541 903 00 & 996 541 531 01 respectively from a thread that i found on here.

Couple of questions, is the "outer seal the black 'rubber' around the screen??? Also, how do you actually go about replacing these parts (procedure)???

Secondly, think this is a new 'issue'. The passenger seat has a 'vibration' when i go over rough road. I have found what it is, which is within the slide for the seat. The actual part that moves backwards and forwards is allowed to wobble slightly up and down. You can grab the back of the seat (headrest area) and push it backwards and forwards to simulate the bumps and get the exact noise. Only the one slide is 'loose'. Anything i can do to stop this?? When someone sits in the chair, all is quiet! Please dont say always drive with a passenger!! ;-)

Thanking you in advance.....

My 99c2 had the braces replaced under warranty, that fixed the ticking noise from that area. Before the work was done I was able to stop the noise for a few minutes by pulling up on the brace. It must have just moved it into a slightly different position. It came back again after I drove for about a mile.

Try that, it may help to confirm if the brace is the source of that noise
