Well that sucks, maybe I'll just sacrifice a goat and hope the sound magically stops.
I have a temporary solution for you. Put a small box or decently thick book in that pocket and it will stop that rattle. I found when I applied pressure to the back of the seat with someone in it the rattle would go away entirely. So I stuck the box my AirPods came in in there and no more rattle. Fords.

I've found one creaking noise today coming from the passenger side ac vent above the glovebox. All these days i thought it was either the glove box or passenger door :headbang:

I have a 2019 mustang gt has about 1500 miles just notice every morning I have a rattle sound coming from passenger side. Once car sits in the Sun it goes away. Need help getting pretty annoying.


Late to this, but nearly exactly the same noise (but quieter) in my '21. I'll check the battery tray, thanks all.

I have the same noise and found the culprit to be passenger seat rail.

I noticed when I took my pass seat out that it went away. I wonder if it's the harness for the electronics banging around.
You might think that, but when I was tracking down a rattle from this area I noticed there's very little under my premium heated/cooled seats to bang around, and things are generally put up pretty neatly. From the noises I was hearing I expected a rats nest of wires. :p

My rattle/clicking ended up being the passenger seat bolts not being torqued properly or something. I just undid and redid the corner I tracked the clicking to, and that solved my issue. There ended up being a TSB I saw at one point about some Mustangs that left the factory with the issue. (don't ask me to cite that, I saw it forever ago)

How was is resolved? New seat/rail, or tightened it down?
resolved by itself over the winter 😂 If it returns again this summer, I'm planning on removing the bolt and retightening it down

... thanks both for the info. Silly question, how did you get to the bolts? Looks like there is a plastic rectangular cutout that comes out of a larger plastic surrounding piece... I tried prying with a trim tool and stopped when it wasn't moving much....

EDIT, went out and got the clips off. My bolts ('21) are not T50... odd... will see dealer for a snug down.

Interesting. Mine did do that from the factory and after I put the seat back in. I'll try to snug it all up.

I think I had to get T55? I don't remember.

Glad you got the covers off, they just pop right off for sure.

For sure not a T50, T55 was too loose, didn't even try and T60 too large. Dealer must have a specific size. I'll make an appointment for them to snug them down.
