    Not meaning to sound condescending, but are the bolts on the rails fully tight? That's all I can think.....

    Hi, yes all bolts appear to be tight, I read about some plastic bushings that can wear over time and some people having the seat frame/rail replaced , aparently these only cured it for a short time till movement returned :eek:

    Yes my 2009 Avant does it, I used spray grease on the three locking pins each side and it got a lot better but it still does it from time to time. I need to have a proper look at some point.

    I gave this a go hoping it would help but no joy, the movement is coming from the 4 torx bolts attaching seat to the runner, I believe they fit in through plastic bushes Into the runner. I did try tightening them up but that made no difference either
