Anyone have an audible rattle from the passenger seat when someone is not sitting in it? Not just the visible vibration but an annoying ticking/rattle sound (along with the seat vibrating visibly). I can usually get it to go away temporarily by adjusting the seat back and/or moving the entire seat all the way to the back most position but it comes back after a while and I have to fiddle with it again. Anyone know a fix? I am out of warranty so I'd like to avoid any dealer business if possible.

Seat bolts are tight. Only the seat back vibrates (not the entire seat) so I assume I would need to access the reclining mechanism for the back part but not sure if that is accessible without removing the leather.

It does sound like something's loose... Maybe a retaining clip? try reclining it all the way back, and all the way forward, and see if that changes anything
