    VXR Rear Seats

    I've had a really annoying rattle in the back of the car since I got it back in October, and I think I've figured out what the problem is.....I just don't know how to fix it.

    I was hoovering out the rear of the car, and grabbed the drivers side rear seat (the 1/3rd section) and it was loose. Tried to push it back, and the locking mechanism isn't engaging fully, so the seat section has about 2 inch of lateral movement.

    The other side (2/3rd part) engages fine, and is nice and secure.

    Anyone else had this issue with a 3 door MK5?

    Sounds like the locking mechanism is locked and you need to release it first. So.....

    Press the button you use to release the seat until the locking mechanism unlocks. You might have to fold that part of the seat all the way forward and try pressing it if it does not release.

    OK, just been outside and I've managed to get mine to click back into place

    I took the head rest off the seat, and folded it forward. I pressed the release catch a few times to make sure it was releasing, and basically gave it one swift hard push back into place, and it clicked back in.

    Released it a couple more times, and it still takes a really good whack to get it to lock in place, but at least it's not moving any more when it's in place.
