J11 Drivers seat 'Metallic Ticking noise'

Post by JamieB90 » Mon Sep 14, 2020 5:50 am

Morning all.

Has anyone had any issues with their drivers seat where someware deep in the mechanism, there is a quite noisey 'tick' noise when force is put on the seat - When you sit down, when you accelerate or brake heavily, change direction, or just generally lean out of your seat, it is always accompanied by a metallic tick noise.

It does not appear to be anything to do with plastic trim or seatbelt linkage etc.

Has anyone expearianced and fixed this issue before?

Regards

Jamie

I believe some early J11 sears were changed under warranty.
