Depends on whether you want to fix the problem or hide the symptoms.
Either way you have to identify the problem. It will usually be a loose bolt, broken spot weld, or broken frame. The proper fix to remove and dismantle the seat to isolate the problem component. Then you repair it. Then you re-assemble and re-install the seat.
Hiding the symptoms can be as simple as a wad of chewing gum or the volume knob on the stereo.

Good day Sir, please my 2006 Ford Explorer XLT has been showing front passenger light on for the front passenger air bag off, what can i do to rectify this, another help is sometimes the brakes gives some...

First the Airbag:
If I am not mistaken the Explorer has third generation airbags in it that are controlled by a weight sensor in the passenger seat. Depending on the weight on the seat the airbag should react accordingly. For instance a small weight may be interpreted as a child sitting there and may turn the airbag off whereas a larger weight may be activate the airbag as the car thinks there is a grown passenger sitting there. Does this answer your question?

Second, "rattling" breaks:
The feeling of uneven pressure in the pedal when applying the breaks could be a number of things, if you are feeling handy you can check them yourself or send the vehicle in for service with instructions to check them.
1) The break pads are warn and need to be replaced.
2) The rotor has been warped from you or a previous driver using the vehicle when the break pads should have been replaced, or external damage of some sort though that is rarely the case.
3) The last time the breaks were replaced the breaklines were not properly "bled" and as a result air bubbles trapped in the line are causing a jumpy feeling when even pressure is applied to the breaks.
4) If I misunderstood your description of rattling for an actual *sound* of rattling the caliper holding the break assembly in place on the rotor may not have been properly bolted in when the last service was done and may be shaking a bit.
If any of these are true then your car is in immediate need of servicing.

Lastly the rear wiper,
Sorry, I have no clue :) but I guarantee it will be on the dashboard or the steering column somewhere.

Hope it helps,

The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

When I am driving it is a rattling squeak, going to replace rear struts this week, see if the noise improves.

You are probably on the right track , replacing your struts, but it would also be a good idea to have a passenger help you locate the area of the squeak. Have them sit in the various other seats with the window down, and try to pinpoint which corner is the worst. You might have a suspension bushing causing the problem too. If your passenger narrows down the source, change either both front struts or both rear, never just one!

Why did the service light for my 2009 kia spectra stay on saying passenger airbag off

Probably because no one is sitting in the passenger seat. If it stays on when someone is sitting in the seat then you may have a problem with the sensor in the seat.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when

That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Passenger seatbelt adjuster rattle.

Are you sure its the b pillar? When driving its really hard to hear noise's. This car is noise prone by the way.

A very common noise comes from the 3rd row lower seat brackets. Drive the car and check for noises from the 3rd row seat bottom.

A creaking noise when the freezer is opened & then closed

In some freezers they build up excessive vacuum which pulls the plastic housing away from the internal polyurethane insulation, hence the creaking sound. You can make a vacuum breaker by attaching a small stick or similar to the bottom of the door gasket, this will break the vacuum without losing temperature.
