Hi all,

My GTV has a really annoying rattle (yes, really...) which sounds like the ball bearing in an aerosol can rattling under the passenger seat every time I accelerate or brake.

Now there have been posts about this on here before, with two theories:

1. it's the seatbelt pre-tensioner system and there's nothing that can be done about it, or...

2. it's a fault with the seat runners which can be cured by removing the seats and lubricating generously.

Are there any conclusions?? It does seem bizarre to design this noise into the car. Can it be the runners? Or is it really just one of those things you have to live with? The list of these things is getting rather long...

Great car though!!

Ed.
