Rattle

I bought my Civic with a small rattle in the rear area. It's not a suspension rattle because I've had the car looked at and the rear suspension is fine. The rattle didn't bother me but now that it's cold I'm ready to scream. I think it's something in the seat because I had somebody back there and I noticed afterwards that it didn't make the noise. I half-assed looked at the back seat to see if anything was loose and didn't find anything.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this rattle? PLEASE

I had an annoying little rattle in the rear of my car, turned out to be the speaker cover. It is worth a look.

On mine, I found that the muffler hanger was rattling. I cut a short piece of water hose and covered the hanger's tip, then I put the OEM rubber hanger holder back on.

To locate a rattle you need someone to be in the backseat, when the rattle starts.
They can touch stuff, to locate the spot.

If they can not find anything you have to start removing stuff like the plastic stuff and or the seats, until it goes away.

If it is some plastic on plastic noise, you can put a dab of silicone at the point of the rattle. Not a lot of silicone and not all over the place.

If its the Speaker cover dash rattle, most people just put paper towels or some type of cushioning under the cover to stop it.
