empty passenger seat rattling

I notice that when going over bumps in the road the front passenger seat rattles a lot when unoccupied. If I hold the backrest it stops. There is quite a bit of forward and backward give in the backrest. I have comfort seats. Anyone else notice this and know of a cure? My wife's Kia is rattle free - I would have expected the 7-Series to be at least as good on that score.
