    Hello everyone,

    Has anyone experienced a popping noise coming from their driver side front seat? It only happens when I lean back on the seat and forward again. Seems to be coming from the top half of the seat. This is the second Tundra I've owned (2009 before, 2021 now) and both have done the same thing.

    Too many, but not enough....
    My 21 doesnt have this but i have the manual seats. From what I have seen it is a fairly common issue though I am not sure i recall the fix for it, if there is one.

    Yeah I have the powered seats on the 2021, on the 2009 I had manual seats and it did the same thing. I remember fixing the 09's seat but cant recall how.

    Thank you sir for all the links, I do remember tightening something down on my 09 so I will check the bolts securing the seat first.

    I had this EXACT same issue with my 2021 Tundra, and Toyota just fixed it yesterday. It was the seat rails.

    Have Toyota replace the seat rails. They should be free since it is still under warranty and this solved my issue. I would imagine you might have the same issue.

    Ohhh i have this on my passenger side, manual seats. only happens when it is the the most rearward position on the rails though. if i move it forward 1 notch, it won't do it.

    My service advisor gave me the look of "yes, we know it's an issue but we won't acknowledge it" as he told me he could not feel anything moving.

    Interesting. I took mine in 3 months ago for this issue. The mechanic and manager told me that it was normal for this vehicle. I told him that it wasn't after coming from a 2015, but they said that torqued down the seat rail bolts. It has only gotten worse. I will have to bring up your thread and see what they say again.
