I have 61 plate C-Max, which has a very annoying jingling noise that seems to be coming from inside the rear driver's side seat. The noise occurs most often when driving on bumpy country lanes, and is still there when I lay the seat down flat. Placing a heavy weight on the upper part of the seat back when it is flat seems to help minimize it. Can anyone suggest how to eliminate this, or perhaps someone has a parts diagram showing what is inside the seat?

That 7zap site is a great place to get information from, I've not seen it before. Sadly it doesn't have my newest car (a 17 plate) so anything more recent than 2015 is possibly out of date but it's a goldmine of useful stuff for older models.
Thanks for the link.

To the OP, have you taken the seat out of the car to give it a shake?
I would take it out and then drive down the bumpy road to confirm that the fault is inside the seat.

Many thanks for all the help, and apologies for the delay in replying. I have folded the back of the rear seat down and tilted the whole thing up and secured it against the back of the driver's seat. This has stopped the noise completely, which suggests it must be coming from the inside of the seat somewhere. However, I am unable to find anything on the diagrams that might make such a noise. Even the slightest bump in the road sets it off, and it sounds like someone has hidden a tambourine in the seat! However, the seat back itself is sealed up by stitching, so nothing can really fall inside it. Any suggestions?

You do need to remove the seat from the car next to confirm its really the seat 100%. Then maybe with help cause they are heavy shake to figure which part the noise is from. I assume you already removed any headrest, so that just means 2 main area's to look at with a torch and maybe unclip the covers and fish out that tambourine!
