yeh my front passenger seats rattles and squeaks on anything less than very smooth roads, it's pretty annoying. the car is otherwise refined and quiet, there's just this annoying rattling seat noise.

already asked the dealer to look at it once, and now it's worse than it was before they looked at it. pretty annoying really, given the price of the vehicle. my nissan patrol doesn't do it and it was less than half the price

take the seat off the car, it might be the only solution. I had mine checked and its still bad but not as bad.

I had a passenger seat that squeaked when someone was sat in it... they eventually identified that the frame was broken

The same thing happens with mine also, but only at higher rates of speed. i believe that it is caused by the more stiff suspension.

Front passenger seat vibration

I have the same problem, got comfort seats drives me mad. I've just had the front passenger headrest relaced as it vibrated, especially when the cars cold, seems to have sorted that vibration, however theres another coming from under the seat. If you look under the back of the seat theres a grey cable that runs down the back of the seat and under to a blue connector, thought I had cracked it by moving this away from the metal frame it was touching slightly but its back again !! Anyone who has any ideas what this could be would be appreciated.
