    All,

    I have literally gone up and down my street over potholes countless times now trying to figure out what is causing this back seat rattle. I have tried moving the headrests up and down, even off. I have shook everything trying to figure it out and I can't. Does anyone know of similar issues in a vehicle or what may cause it? Is it just the truck and this is normal? Help!

    Locate the power wire that runs to the rear sliding window. It runs along the back firewall along the top near the passenger side rear head rest. If it came out of the clip that is supposed to secure it then it will rattle and squeak like crazy against the back window.

    You might wanna check your jack too! If the wing nut isn't tight it'll rattle I've had to tighten mine after going off road!

    Bird already wore out his back seat, all by himself

    I have determined that it is coming from the back passenger side seat, sounds like it is above the seat in the ceiling? I cannot figure out what the hell it is... It's only when I hit potholes or rough road

    Could be a bracket or something that holds up the headliner

    I am about 99% sure that it's from the headboard, should I take it to ford? I hate the dealerships they're all scumbags
