Passenger seat rattle on a 2001 996

Recommended Posts

I get a persistent rattle from the passenger seat on my power regulated Carrera 4 seat.  I can make the sound simply by hitting the back of the seat with my fist lightly.  It goes slightly away when the seat is dropped all the way down.  Also, if someone is sitting in the seat, there is no issue.  It seems like the weight of the back of the seat is acting like a lever and the fulcrum point is the hinge.  The play in the seat allows it to vibrate against the hinge.  I would like to solve this problem and wonder if anyone has come up with a solution besides having someone sit there.

I don't have the noise you're talking about but I understand what you mean.  If you were to put some lubricant on the seat back lock (at the bottom of the seat back, which keeps the seat back from folding forward) that might put an end to it.
