    Found this part in the rear footwell and my passenger seat makes a noise now as if a bolt is not tight and allowing movement over bumps - hard surface to hard surface kinda rattle noise - pretty much the only noise in the cabin which is annoying :sadlike:

    Does anyone recognise this part - looks as though it has snapped off at one end but cant find where it has come off :think:


    Cheers

    it attaches to the the bottom of the seat.If you were sitting in the rear seat, it would be between your legs where the cushion meets the carpet. Not really sure what its for, as the seat hinge the other way...

    it's used to lift the rear bench up, and they break all the time

    nothing fingers can't solve.
