    Is there any adjustment in the passengers' seat, or do I just have to live with it rattling? I had a piece of heater hose around the pin, but it was still loose (only cut down on the noise) - anyone know?

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    I have to re-apply foam weatherstrip to my rubber bumpers ever so often to keep rattles down.

    Yes, there is adjustment for the passenger's seat. If you look up where the big "hook" that clips down into the floor is connected to the seat frame, there should be some shims in there between the hook mechanism and the frame. Just loosed the bolts up and pull one or two out. Or if all of the shims are already out, you could glue some old pieces or carpet to the bottom of the seat on the two big parts that touch the floor.

    As the carpet and pad wear down, this gets looser. I had to add washers to mine after I put in new carpet , since now I have have two pads.

    Thanks a bunch - Once I got the shims out it was perfect. Now if I can just keep track of them for when I recarpet it, I'll be doing pretty good[​IMG]
