Seats making noise

Aight, the door panel noise is fixed, I went to the dealer and it took them only 5mins to fix it.

Whenever I hit a wavy road (alot here in Indonesia), my front passenger seat and rear seats make some sort of noise, as if they are not tight. Has anyone experienced this? It is not the leather rubbing against each other.

Thanks!

I had a plastic trim part on the lower part of the passenger seat work loose. Clicked it back in and the noise disappeared. Check those to see.

Deetz, funny you seem to have the same problems as I am

I know what you're referring to and I haven't had it fixed yet (havent brought it to the dealer). The seats vibrate and make noise, right? Why don't you bring it to the dealer and have them look at it? Keep me posted

I brought it to the dealer. There were three source of noise

1.) Trunk panel, it was lubricated and fixed. - ALL SET

2.) Rear Passenger Seats, the leather was rubbing against each other - ALL SET

3.) Front Passenger Seat, it is still vibrating until now, and its making noises whenever I hit curvy road. - Problem not fully solved, but its better.

Anyone knows how to fix it?
