Just an update guys. I tried the insulating tape trick this morning and It actually worked. No more irritating tapping noise while driving.

Thanks again for all the replies and advice 👍

Just fold down the rear seats and where the seats lock back into place just wrap some insulating tape around the metal catch where the seat latch locks back into place.

This Is the side where I haven't put any insulating tape. But It shows the metal catch where you need to wrap some insulating tape around.

Funny story.

Years ago I worked beside va dunderhead called Brian. He did too many idiotic things to list but one day he was complaining about a knocking noise from his car. Said it was booked into a garage the next day for them to look at it.

I asked him to take me out a run at lunch time to hear the noise. Sure enough, no sooner had we pulled out of the car park..'clunk'. There it is says Brian. I reached under the passenger seat and pulled out an empty Iron Bru bottle! Clunk fixed.

By all means put the car into the dealer but do try not to be a Brian ;0)

Seat adjust the catch that the rear seat locks into so just book it in with them to sort it out.

Mine has been great since they did this and it’s under warranty.

for anyone else that have this issue or can hear a knocking / rattling sound from the rear, just drop the seats and if it goes away, then this shows what the problem is and Seat are fully aware of the issue.
