Annoying rattle/knock

Hi all, i seem to have a very annoying rattle or knock coming from either the hand brake or double passenger seat. Only when reversing off my drive and accelerating, occasionally over bumps. It sounds like metal on metal, almost like a coin has been dropped and rolls back and forth hitting something. I have taken the seat plastics off the driver side to rule that out. I know its pretty tricky to diagnose but does anyone have an idea idea what could cause this or has had something similar, it drives me nuts !!

Will do, the only way i can replicate the noise is if i let they hand brake off and give it a gentle pull and let it go without pressing the button in. It sounds like the handbrake dropping down and making a clunk....strange

So, after removing almost every panel, mud flaps, door cards, arm rests, glove box, rear seats, jack and spending many hours hunting the b*****d rattle down I've finally solved it....it was a little plastic thing that was covering a thread from a screw poking upwards into the cab floor underneath the drivers seat ( not sure what that screw is doing mind). As it wasnt clipped on properly it was having a kind of see saw affect when cornering or breaking hard which resulted in it knocking against the metal floor and causing said knock/rattle. Pushed back on with a click and voila. No more infuriating rattle, i even stuck it down with blu tac to stop it working free again.

Maybe this will help someone in the future
