In Reply to: Seatbelt? posted by Waterside on November 23, 1999 at 13:22:04:

Last night, after getting annoyed by the rattling, I stopped the car and sat in the back seat. Pushing the cushion near the drivers side made a noise similar to the rattle. The cushion on the other side did not rattle as much. I wonder if the seat cushion simply is not seated properly.

I am planning on taking it to the dealer soon but want to wait until other things come up.

: : I have the wind noise at about 60 mph, and the
: : rattle seems like perhaps from the rear headrest
: : on the driver's side. Both are starting to annoy
: : me a bit. Has anyone taken these issues to a
: : dealer yet?

: I don't have either problem but I do remember seeing posts quite some time ago about the rattle. You may want to verify that the seat belt anchor on the pillar is locked into place properly. There are two latches and if one is not fully seated it will rattle (according to previous posts - an archive search may yield more details).

: I checked mine before I even left the dealer and found that it had this problem. A little push and it clicked the rest of the way. . .
