I tried and I failed, but thanks anyway.
In the picture above we can se completely disassembled rear seat what I don't want to do.
The question is can bench be removed or lifted without removing any screw or installation (heated seats).
tbomun I read your post about the rattle u experienced in your Tucson 2016. I have a 2017 Tucson Premier and what you described sounds exactly what I have. Wondered if you found a solution.i believe im experiencing the same thing. to me the sound is like a thumping or knocking when i drive over small bumps in road, even at slow speeds.. sound is coming from rear passenger side. ive tried closing door better, making sure seats are locked in, checked if seat belt is loose and nothing. the noise is not noticeable if i turn on radio, but it is driving me bonkers when i hear it. I was thinking of adding sound dampening material to the wheel well cuz it sorta sounds like the shock bottoming out as if i drove over a pot hole and the wheel sunk all way down.
I believe that the situation is known. The following is in regards to Kia Sportage same family as Tuscon.

thank you for this picture. my tucson has 31,000 miles on it and the rattle has been happening for about a month. driving me nuts trying to figure where its coming from. sounds similar to a bad shock. however, thanks to this forum and your post, I noticed my wheel well screws were very loose. tightening those up fixed my rattle. 2015 tucson limited. life is good again lolI had the same rattle noise and tried all the suggestions with no luck. I happened to be replacing the mats with All Weather mats and when I bent to cut them, I noticed bolts that hold the liner above the tire that were loose. I tighten them all the vehicle and have not heard the rattle since. Hope this helps.
