    Re: Seat rattle

    Rattles more when the seat it hit side to side more than backwards and forwards. Changing the seat height or back support has no effect. Cant see anything obvious. Its nothing to do with the seat belt.

    Re: Seat rattle

    It's probably coming from where the seat back pivots. If all the bolts
    are tight, then it's a mechanical area in the seat itself. You should
    be able to wiggle the swat back, back and forth and see where it's
    coming from.

    Not sure if its actually coming from there because if i hold the bottom of the seat and continue to hit that back of the seat it doesn't rattle. If its mechanical would this be due to wear and tear? What bolts would I look at if it could be a loose bolt any on the seat?

    Re: Seat rattle

    What if you don't hold the bottom, then hit the seat back? That would
    narrow it down to the bottom part.

    Re: Seat rattle

    It seems to stop when the back of the seat is held while hitting the seat, if you sit on the seat leant forward not leaning on the back it still rattles but just not as much

    Re: Seat rattle

    If I pull the bottom of the seat tight using the frame and still hit the back of the seat it stops it rattling

    Re: Seat rattle

    Time to get out the silicone spray, get under there and lube up all the moving
    parts... Lube the area where the seat back pivots on the seat bottom...
    Do one area at a time to see when it stops.

    Re: Seat rattle

    My driver side strut tower was squeaking, till I went off road in a snow storm
    last Wednesday. Headed towards a gully, veered right away from it, smacked
    something VERY hard underneath the car, bounced off it and went back on road.
    Hasn't made a sound since... I found the hit, was at the front cross-member,
    which is partially covered by a solid aluminum plate (Osiris belly pan). I saw the
    scrape on the plate, about a 3" roundish smack'a'roo. Did not hit the suspension,
    just the belly pan there, and no more squeaking. May have tweaked the suspension
    hitting it there, might be pulling on the control arms a bit. That would also be
    fine, would partially correct the camber issue...

    New metallic vibration:
    Two days ago, I hit a 2' long, 7" round log, setting horizontally in the road.
    It was; hit that in the left lane, or the entire tree in the right lane.. VERY
    windy Monday. Anyhow, the log hit the metal belly pan, but before it
    shattered into pieces, pulled the exhaust out of the hangars at the NOx
    catalyst, that is bolted to the same cross-member. No damage to the
    pan, but I had to remove the plastic piece with the rubber grommets,
    wiggle the hangars back into the holes, then bolt it back on to the X-member.
    I thought it was the dog-bone mount hitting the pan, but once I got
    it up on my ramps, saw the exhaust hanging there, that was hitting
    off the X-member when braking. Took care of that...

    Still, ever since that real bad hit last week, the motor vibrates a little
    more than it did before. Kind of like it did when I had the Spulin
    insert in the dog-bone mount bushing. I have a new dog-bone mount
    coming tomorrow, just in case... I am going to install it regardless...

    I am sure I need motor mounts too...

    Sounds like a bad series of events that. Yeah your best of replacing it while you've got it its not a big job. Get your engine mounts checked out

    Re: Seat rattle

    Lubricated it all up and took the seat out cant find anything obvious thats loose. It just seems as though the seats worn from going forwards and backwards so has play in it
