The rattling noise from the rear passenger seat was driving me crazy! I finally took my car in for service and their techs found the seat assembly needed an adjustment (~1/4 - 1/2 turn on each fastening bolts). I test drove my car with the service manager and heard no rattles (Yeah!). The next morning, same noise as before (Boooo!).
I found a temporary remedy by placing a thick piece of dense foam between the two seats where the 60/40 split is. My hypothesis is that is the larger folding backing vibrates causing the rattling noise. The dense foam may have reduced the passenger seat back oscillation causing the noise.
I'm not eager to take my car back anytime soon, so this band-aid will have to do for the time being.
