    Fairly recently this noise has started everytime i lean back into the seat then lean forward agian. It's like a click - clack noise.
    It's a series 1 Berlina with a over 200k's on it. The noise seems to be connected with the lumbar support. If i wind up the lumbar support to the max it goes away... Yay, but i get a sore back lol.

    Has anyone had this same noise before? Is there a fix for it or should i put up with it or replace the seat from a wrecker ???
    Other than this is drives great and has very few noises.

    I have the same noise in the driver and passengers seat. It is almost like it is sticking and unsticking. Haven't got the time right now to pull the seat apart and troubleshoot it but I'm interested to hear if anyone else has a fix

    Temporarily I've fixed mine by cranking up the lumbar support to near maximum. I guess this must hold the foam away from that glue just by luck!

    I will try it just didn't want to break the plastic back off until someone like you figured out how to get it off and see what's inside. Thanks for your efforts !

    Digging this up from 2016...

    My Ute has been doing this and it has been pissing me off so hard.

    The noise is in the back of the seat, not the base, and it does sound AND FEEL like glue being stuck and unstuck. The great thing is Captain Commodore has edited his replies and hidden the fix...

    Probably the fuel pump, as it’s located under the back seat on the drivers side.

    What a jerk Captain Commodore is.

    Pull the back of the seat off.
    From the bottom. White Xmas tree push fit, from memory, hooks at top. Don't pull the top.
    Place something over the adhesive or clean it off,
    I used a microfiber cloth.
    Put back together

    What's so funny ?,
    you asked a question,
    and I gave you an answer MATE to what a noise could be under the back seat.

    The noise is in the seat. It clicks every time you lean back in the seat even if the engine is switched off.
    Fuel pump was just a random answer.

    You are referring to the drivers seat? Yes?

    No It wasn't random answer, Without knowing what the exact actual fault was,
    I gave you an answer to it could be, ie: noisy fuel pump,
    As some JC Members have found its a noisy pump.

    I was expecting someone to say its the base and to grease something, but thats another noise the seats seem to make...

    This is the same with the release handle the ute seats have? I assume thats some sort of cable thingy that just clips onto the handle.

    Pull seat out and tighten the 4 13mm nuts that hold the rails to the seat chassis.
