Drivers seat clicking when driving...

My seat clicks on acceleration and deceleration and going around corners of going over bumps on the road. Itís constant and it annoys the living shut out of me. Any ideas? Anyone heard this problem before? Yes Iíve take. The seat out and inspected underneath. Nothing I can see. The bolts have been torqued to specification. So itís not loose.. cheers.

Does it still do it if the seat is moved up or back a notch or two?

Maybe try giving the moving parts a shot of silicone spray or WD-40 -

I'm thinking maybe a sticky mechanism is not allowing the pins to drop all the way into the notches of the rail.

Just guessing here -

Have you made sure the bolts are torqued down enough? I've had to re-drive a couple of mine.
Be wary not to over bubba them though, they won't come back out willingly.

My car is probably one of the few Subarus I've sat in that didn't have some sort of groan or creak in the seat though.

I had the same problem, though it was on at the passenger's seat - I have a RHD. It's the horizontal bar that adjusts the bottom seat position, try reseating the position and tap on the bar to ensure no freeplay.

But hmmm. It’s been making clicking sounds for months. Thought maybe adjusting the seat would’ve done something. I don’t know. I’ve kicked it and everything hahah. Nothing. I’ll try greasing it soon

Does it happen when you also have a passenger? On mine, it was the snap on passenger the seat belt strap. I put the seat belt inside the loop and snapped it in place; the noise has not returned.

I've had the same issue with the driver seat practically since I drove it off the lot back in 2017. Maybe I'm just too fat .

It's annoying but never bothered fixing it since it kind of just blends in with the rest of the oddity/novelty noises this car makes.

Will definitely follow along so if you find a good fix I can try it on mine .

I've had my seat make a noise on turns for a long time now. It's really weird, I can hear a noise and feel an "impact" through my bum, but can't tell where it's coming from.

The seat isn't loose at all, there's nothing in the pouch behind the seat or under it, it's as if something was moving inside of it. LHD car and skinny driver.

Mine only clicks when there is vibration (eg. rough roads, vibration from engine with clutch depressed and below idle). There is a spring(s) that keeps the horizontal adjustment bar in position - to adjust the seating position the bar has to be lifted but for some reason the bar can also pushed downwards towards the floor. This allows the bar to 'chatter' when the chassis vibrates and you get that 'tinking' sound.

With a passenger on the seat the person essentially dampens it so it doesn't vibrate, or as much - will take a look to see what can be done in the coming days.

I always thought this was my snowbrush being tossed around the rear footwell, until one day I put the brush on the front passenger floor and still felt like something was clunking around hitting the rear of my drivers seat (LHD). I'll report back if I find anything with mine!

Managed to fix the rattle. Just wedge a piece of paper like in the image below. The paper will restrict the movement of the bar moving downwards, and will keep the bar held in its resting position.



Do not put too thick of a paper (approx 5mm is good enough) or the seat will not latch properly - you can tell this is happening if the seat wiggles even when the latch happens.
