Hey everyone. For those of you who have received their ZR2, have you experienced a rattle from the rear seat headrest area while going over bumps? It is quite loud and annoying for me. I have posted a video. I have taken everything I store from under the rear seats (thinking the cause was some of my stuff that I store under my seats) but the sound still persists.

I had that annoying sound forever and couldn't figure it out but I haven't heard the nose in like a week or so but would still like to know what it is

Funny reading this, had that exact sound this afternoon. 2000 miles in and this is the only "issue".

My advice is to change some things. Seats flipped up, see if it continues.

If you are mechanically inclined I can tell you how to remove the seatback.

The T1 at launch had body seam issues along the top of the backglass and I’ve ripped these trucks apart more then I’d like to admit.

My 2016 has a similar "issue", I "solved" the problem by folding the rear passenger seat up. I've still not figured out how to permanently resolve the annoying sound when the seat is folded down into it's normal position...would love to know this fix.

Yep, I have tried driving with seats up and the sound still persists. And LOL wasn't hoping to have to remove the seatback but that may be an option:ROFLMAO:

No one cares more about your stuff then you.

The dealer for myself is always a last resort. Especially when it comes to interior trim work.

Have a friend sit in the rear floor and use ears. It’s exactly what the dealership is going to do.

I've noticed it too, mainly after carrying something in the rear seat (dogs, people, stuff to the storage unit). I found that if you raise and then lower the passenger rear seat bottom, the sound goes away. It's annoying as hell...

My dealer has a seat back bracket on order for me to hopefully fix this, if it doesn't I'm pulling the rear seats to dynamat the rear.
