Hi,


Bought a CRDI Proceed 2 in December 09. The drivers headrest had an anoying rattle. After 9 weeks wait and replacement the new one still does the same. Any ideas.

Sounds like the rattle could be where it fits into seat backrest and its the parts in there thats rattling.

I do not see that as homour I see it as offensive. This site is not a good advert for Kia owners.

Good Grief, calm down!

You've had a replacement headrest, and it's not fixed, hence my suggestion about the interior mirror, as that is a known rattle point, can't see 2 headrests in a row being rattlers, anyway as we can't help maybe just refer it to your dealer.

Ha I feel a Cigar moment coming on.
Right back to the problem, is it only the drivers seat? can you remove the headrest and does the rattle still show? its got to be a matter of elimination and I hope KIA have not given up on solving it.

More than not it will be a small part costing a few pence.

Keep taking it back to the dealer and give them a chance to trace and cure the problem.

To be very serious here take it back to the dealer. That is what the 7 year warranty is for and I am sure he will be happy to help you.

Car booked back in on Wednesday to get the headrest looked at again. Probably another 9 week wait for a replacement.

Could be the seat itself as you`ve had the rest replaced already, maybe the mounts that the headrest bars seat into. May be a new seat?????
Definately a pain for you but keep on until it`s sorted.

ceed has active headrests that are designed to move so it will feel loose but have to say never had one rattle, seat belt top mounts, interior mirrors, sunroof blinds but not headrests worth checking your position in the seat if your seat is too reclinded it causes the active headrest to move sit in the seat and push the brake pedal hard if the headrest moves forward you are causeing the headrest to move off its at rest position and to become active in this position the headrest willmove a lot and possibly rattle to stop this move your backrest into a slightly moreup right position and try again hope this helps

Right,


Car been back to Kia and it appears the headrest was not replaced. They replaced the seat back despite me telling them it was the headrest. Now getting a headrest ordered (probably another 9 week wait).
