ARRRRGH! Seat clicking!!!

I knew I shouldn't have gotten the damn fold-down seats. They are making a persistant "clicking" noise when the car is moving. Is this the plastic band on the top of the seats hitting against the frame of the car? It's driving me freaking nuts! Do you think slapping on copious amounts of plastic conditioner would help?

There are lots of posts about this. Try wedging some cloth or other material between the seat and frame. Also, are you sure the seat is fully "locked" in place? Some times the seat will make some noise at the seat latch - I think BMW even makes a special wax like goop to apply to the latch to quiet it down.

geomax - Yes, I ensured the seats were both properly locked in place. I will investigate this goop. Thanks for the tip! :thumb: However, it sounds more like plastic against plastic... but I am not positive of this. :dunno:
Hmm..not sure what it could be...check out jw's post..that thread has a lot of uselful info.

One thing I've done in the past to track down a hard to find squeek/rattle, especially somewhere in the rear of the car, is to have someone else drive and get in the back seat - that way you can home in on it...it's kinda OCD...but then..aren't we all?? :D
