I’ve noticed all 3 the new Vitara’s I've driven (reject car,loan car and replacement car) the passenger seat clip rattles against the plastic near the innner door when the engine is on and car is still. I’m thinking of getting a sock over it or belting up an empty seat. Anyone else noticed the rattle?

Yes, well known problem.
The belt clip is stopped from falling down by a small plastic "button". I took a similar one from an old car and attached to the belt about 10 cm higher. I had to try several because they often break when removed. That fixed the noice.

If you do this make sure you don't damage the belt by cutting any of the thin threads.

If the passenger isnt lazy and feeds the seatbelt back in its original position instead of just letting it retract itself (in turn scratching/damaging the interior B pillar plastics) you don't have the seatbelt rattle
3 Vitara's in and no seatbelt rattle once I'd highlighted how to not damage my car lol!
