If you want a quick and inexpensive way to fix this immediately and have it last a long time just take black electrical tape and stretch it tightly over the seat catch/latch this will take up the slack without having to try to adjust the seats while at the same time creating a cushion between the two metal latches and catches which should dampen the annoying sounds of the rattling.Hope this works.
Happy Motoring!!

How do you adjust the tail gate to stop the annoying rattle when driving?


Most rattles are due to the back door not closing tight enough. There is a lock/striker that the door lock assembly latches to. Usually the striker/latch is bolted to the rear floor/bumper area and the screws/bolts securing it can be loosened and the striker/latch moved forward and retightened which in turn will cause the door to be tighter stopping any rattles. You may also have a rattle inside the door assembly itself or loose paneling causing this issue

How do you remove the rear seat of 2004 honda accord


Release the two latches at the front of the seat cushion (pull back on the latches to release the front of the cushion).

Remove the seat cushion bolt and remove the cushion (it’s roughly in the center. You have to insert a socket extension between the back and bottom seat cushions to take it out, after you find it by pressuring the bottom cushion and looking back in there).

Remove the bolts (each side) securing the seat side bolsters (they are easy to see once the bottom cushion is removed), then remove the side bolters (gently release the clips that hold them in).

Pull the seat forward, then remove the fasteners securing the seat hinge (seat pivot bracket) and remove the seat backs.

Hope this helps you.

I have a 2007 ford fusion and i was driving one day and placed the seat belt behinf the headrest and now it is locked and there is not enough slack to move it. how do i get it unlocked ?


Try this:
1. On the door post, the belt holder can slide up and down. Slide it to loosen the belt tension, being careful to not let the belt tighten.
2. If no belt slack, try adjusting the seat back either lean forward or back, if possible.
3. You may have to move seat back / forth and adjust seat back a certain way.

Seat belt on rear seat has jammed


This happens to me also. To solve the problem you need to un-bolt the seat belt clip. A bit tricky when the bench is tight down, but get a friend to hold it up out of the way as much as possible. This will relieve the tension and allow the seat belt to return to normal. To prevent this in future, pull the seat belt out and clip it in to place before lowering the back bench. This allows enough slack on the seat belt tensioner to stop the problem from happening again.

Rattle from rear supention on uneaven road surface


Could be the door panel rattling around.
the main other squeak culprit in these models is the latch and pin that locks the rear seats upright. If these get slightly worn or are not properly and tightly adjusted, they can cause the most annoying squeak! Easy to check this one. just fold seats down and drive and see if the noise goes.
it would be better if you tied electrical tape around the latch.

My rear seat belts have locked with the seat in the down position and i can not put the seat back up


I had a problem like this. The seat belt stop (the small button through the belt) had broken and fallen off. When I tried put the seat up the belt had wound too tight and with no slack wouldn't release. I had to unbolt the bottom end of the seat belt from the floor and raise the seat. While I had the unit off the floor I had slack enough to release the belt and extend it to bolt the floor unit back down. There should be two of these button on the belt. One keeps the belt from rewinding too far and the other one holds the seat belt latch up on the belt. You can buy these buttons from some auto parts stores. You might have to buy a bag full, but they're not expensive. Good luck..

Rear seat tumbled forward for more room in back and seat belt jamed. now back seat can not go back into position.


To fix that scenario, I have to get to the bolts anchoring the seat belt which can be found under the rear seat. Which a socket wrench, remove the bolt freeing the seatbelt to allow you room to release the lock to pull the belt out from the top of the back seat. You may now push the back seat into its upright position and then refasten the seatbelts with the bolt to it's former position under the back seat.

When I in later times need to lower the back seat, I will either loop the seatbelt around the head rest or tie two belts together allowing for slack in case the belt tightens again when trying to move the seat back to its original position.

.....Very frustrating!!!
