Mark,
Sounds like the same issue I had,fully resolved at the first service recently. The emergency release cord was found to be insecure. Car was retained overnight as the rear compartment has to be removed to reach the offending item. All perfect thereafter pleased to say!

Hi Robert
Yes it could well be that when it rattles vibrates its the plastic  cover on top of the seat belt reel on passenger side when it vibrates if you push down on the cover it stops !!
Will have to book it in its so annoying

Hi Mark

Ref. your rattle/vibration thread, I know it’s a few months back & I trust you got it sorted?  I bought a 718T Aug.20 hardly used it (Covid + it’s my second car)
I to seem to get a noise from time to time rear N/S compartment it resonates through the car when going through the gears PDK. (on motorway Fine) just a bit annoying. Got her from Porsche London who have said as I live in the north-east, no problem take it to your local Porsche Centre it’s still under warranty, get the technician to have a drive, they should sort it. I did contact Porsche Teesside who I've used in the past to Service my 981 Boxster.  Understandable with Covid, they didn’t want a technician sitting next to me in the car, couldn’t lend me a courtesy car, If I dropped my car off. They suggested, can I  record the issue! (Not easy!) The car will be due for its first service in September, I’m sure they would look into it then, although it seems a long time to wait - just wondered whether you guys have any suggestions
Cheers, Phil M.

Hi Phiip
I sympathize with you as the rattles whines are so annoying .To be honest i still get rattles vibrations now i did manage to sort  one vibration noise behind me on the plastic cover by rear window , i put some cardboard in between the gap so you cannot see it. if that make sense & it has stopped that noise.
However the drivers seat now creaks when you move in the slightest way its the back of the seat. Going in to OPC Tewkesbury 22/03/2021so hopefully will get sorted. Im not being finicky about it but Porsche are not cheap to buy if it was a Escort or astra i would not be to botherd.
I would definitely return the car if the noise persists and why shouldn't you?? all the best hope you get it sorted
..Mark..
