    yup, it's a feature of Vx seats

    Best way of fixing it is to take seat out (remembering to unplug seat-belt pretensioners and not start car) and then take the back off seat and put dollops and dollops of really thick grease in all the moving parts!!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    Hi, i had a rattle that i thought was the passenger seat and it disappeared when someone was sat in the seat. It turns out to be the inside of the seatbelt holder (where the buckle goes into) hence why it disappears when someone is sat in the seat with the seat belt on. not sure how to cure it but thought it might help before you start to rip your seat apart.
