Let me know what they say. Mine thought it was the seatbelts originally.
After even adjusting the seats the noise is still there.

I too have had this same problem, and tried all sorts of things to no avail, the problem is the rear latch connecting with the striker, (metal on metal), also adjustment of the two rubber stops on either side of the hatch should be adjusted evenly on both sides, I did mine approximately two full turns out, hyundai should have put a plastic sleeve over the striker , I have had this problems on older jeeps as well, to determine if this was the problem I wrapped the striker with about 1/8 " of duck tape . And woo hoo this solved the problem.This should be an update for Hyundai to consider. I'am now enjoying my Tucson greatly. hope this helps.

Add my Tucson to the list of rear passenger seat rattles. I have resorted to driving with the seat folded down, which stops the rattle. Mine is not the rear hatch door. It is not the seat belts. It is the rear passenger side seat. Has anyone found a real permanent fix to this problem? I plan to take it to my Hyundai Service Department but I would rather not have to re-invent the wheel. If anyone's Hyundai service department has identified the problem and found a fix I would really appreciate that information. Thanks.

Well I found a fix for my rattle so wanted to share. The idea came from a guy who posted on the Kia Sportage forum...

Here's the link (see posts 5 and 6 from member hmeh):

http://www.kia-forums.com/#/topics/267722?page=1

The solution is to put some felt under the middle (and in my case back passenger) seat. You do this by detaching and lifting the seat bench (very easy to do) and placing some sheets of felt on the bench once the seats are lifted.

There are four latches that keep the seat bottom in place, two in the front and one on each side. If you run your finger under the bottom of the front of the seat you'll feel where the latch is and you just pull up and it pops out. Once the front latches are disengaged it's easy to disengage the side ones. At that point the seat bottom lifts all the way up.

I put two sheets of felt under the middle seat toward the back and put four sheets of felt under the back passenger seat, also toward the back.

Apparently the rattle happens because the seat bench is hitting the seat back causing it to vibrate. This also explains why lowering the seat back eliminates the rattle (in my case). The felt seems to make the seat bench have better contact with the seat back so there's less room for vibration.

I've had two quiet morning drives to work so I'm hopeful this is a permanent fix.
