Drivers Seat Slight Clunk

Post by Dapa » Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:23 pm

It seems to be more so when you have to pull away from a standing start.

The car is 8 months old and 15,500 miles, surely this can't be normal.

Thoughts?

Are you sure it’s not coming from the break pads ?
My passenger seat was creaking when I went round corners, so I got the wd40 out and sprayed the rails what the seat sits on and the noise is gone now.

It only appears when pulling away, it is also heard if car is stationery and sit in the drivers seat and move about.

I have same issue, when pulling away or braking, there is a creak/clunk which I feel on my left side just above ass level. Have tried moving seat to different positions, same. Annoying, feels like something needs tightened but I cant figure out what. Will get dealer to check when next service due.

This is getting really annoying, are the dealers aware that this is an issue?

I'm having the same problem, when you pull away the seat makes a knocking noise, i think it's coming from the pivot point of the seat but I don't know how you would fix that.

Got the car going into the dealers to have a look at this issue, they advised they may have to contact VX to confirm it is covered under warranty and if not I would be liable.

Surely it should be, the car is only 9 months old.

Opinions please.

Which seats are you referring to? The normal ones, the ergonomic ones or the fully electric ones?
