Default Seat rattle help!

My drivers side seat is clicking when I slow down not fast even just the usally lighter brake pressure. It makes a clicking noise. It sometimes will do it repeatly sometimes louder and sometimes softer. I am a hard guy to tick off, but when its only a year or so old and I have warrentry I want to get it fixed. What is it? Any idea what it is? I have played with the seat adjuster as well to see if the angle it was at was the problem. By the way has cloth dual 6 power seats and front seat heaters. Anyone have an idea or have this problem? PLEASE HELP ME!
Thanks Chris

PS: Is this something I can fix in my driveway on my own or with my sons help?

1st thing I'd do is to check the seat mounting bolts to see if all are tight. They are relatively easy to get to before you haul her in. If not that you will probably want to take her in. Could be seat rail to chassis rail play. My seat does not make noise but it does have a slightly irksome slip or "give" when I apply brakes or accelerate.

I think he summed it up well. Check the seat bolts. I've seen people get ready to sell a car over them.

It'* a quick easy check. Plus if they are loose.. you don't want to get into an accident and have the seat move on you.
