Here's a video of mine. Still haven't looked for the source yet, but it sounds just like the video I linked earlier in this thread.

2018 STI Passenger Seat Rattle - YouTube

Video also shows how sadly shitty the seats are. So unstable when taking corners at speed.

Mine (2018) did this as well when the seat was in the all the way back position. I didn't know about the plastic piece under there but I just slid the seat a few positions up and it stays quiet.
But now, I have a lot of other rattles (because Subaru) and have basically given up

Only other rattle in my 2018 has been from day 2. The latch for the center console.

That video is a great find - my ‘15 has always had these rattles and had to find the seat position sweet spot to fix it.

My wife is 6’2 and she pushes the passenger seat all the way back when she gets in, then when I move it when she’s out I still get the rattle mentioned in the comments until I find the “sweet spot”. Gonna put the foam under the seat per the vid and the felt tape on the rails per the comments... great find!
