    Rattling noise from driver's side seat belt on uneven roads

    Has anyone had this problem of seat belt rattling coming from the catch, when it is on uneven roads?

    Not yet, but the cleverest solution I've ever seen was on my Miata, where they had a little plastic clip on the interior, just behind the door opening, into which you inserted the buckle. Handy and easy for the passenger to grab the seatbellt -- and no rattle. Might be an interesting retrofit for a Porsche.

    I had this rattle issue on the unoccupied passenger side but moving the seat forward a little solved it. Not sure if that is what the thread relate too.

    Thank you guys. I think the noise was caused by the metal parts moving in the buckle when seat belt is on but it did not happen on passengers side.

    Thanks. I have moved the clip near the buckle to tighten the seat belt but it does not seem to improve. Will try solve this when bringing this back for service.

    Same problem. I just always buckle the passenger seat belt when not occupied.

    Re: Rattling noise from driver's side seat belt on uneven roads

    Mine almost makes a buzzing sound. I have found only one road where it does this and it is just the right (wrong?) road surface that sets it up. It is of such short duration and so small an occurrence that I have not addressed it.

    Any news on the culprit? I have clicking noise/rattle in the center dash too. That one is bad and has to fixed. Sounds like 2 turn signals going at once!

    Any solutions to this issue?

    This just started happening to mine. Clinking during acceleration/braking.

    Thanks

    Re: Rattling noise from driver's side seat belt on uneven roads

    On my 2016 CS, the problem was simply my plastic seat belt latch rubbing on the seat. Easy test is to just put a cloth between the two - if the sound goes away, that's the problem. Solution is to get some adhesive felt and affix it to the latch.
    On the passenger side, the buckle can bump on the plastic molding. If you rarely have a passenger, you can just keep that belt latched in.

    Thanks Bern. But mine is rattling internally and it only seems to happen with the seat belt buckled in and only on the drivers side. It feels like something is loose in in there. Buckle still works fine.

    I find that pulling the belt snug at the lap puts some tension on the buckle and eliminates most of the creaking coming from the latch.

    I always just slide the seat buckle all the way up and flip it up as it is against the seat belt outlet trim.
