Mine does the same thing. It seems like it is coming from the right side. I haven't messed with and it just started recently. You might want to try adjusting the recline to see if it is happier in a different position.erik720 said:its coming from the 2nd row seats. the back rest shakes everytime i go over something. any ideas how i can fix this????
That has to do with the lack of proper hardening of the hinges in which my serial number is after the affected range. I think they were concerned that the hinge would fail. Possibly in a crash.erik720 said:
This is exactly what happened with my 08 Tribeca! It took me 3 trips to the dealership to fix misaligned hatch problem. Funny enough, the delarship said exactly the same thing and they could not simply fix it at the dealrship premises since they did not have proper tools (???). They claimed that they had to send my car to the body shop just to align the hatch! Anyway, it is *much* less noise from the back now. Rear sits still rattle though... Do not know what to do.avjunky said:I brought the Tribeca into the shop to get the rattle looked at and they said that the hatch is misaligned. They took a look at the way it as closing, phoned the Subaru Tech Line and came up with the cause. It makes sense to me because I stuck a couple of flat plastic pieces on one side of the hatch (on the rubber hatch guiders) and it minimized the issue. This discs are normally found on the bottom of chairs which are used to protect the floor. I think a lot of people who are using towels, and other items to fix the rattle are having the same problem. I have to take it to a body shop to get it looked into though because a normal service center doesn't have the equipment to align the hatch properly. I'm starting to wonder if the hinges being used on the 08/09 Tribeca are strong enough to hold the hatch into place. I suspect there is going to be a TSB on this issue relatively soon because I've found all kinds of people complaining of the same issue (especially in colder locations).
