Every one I've had does it. But never really been bad enough to warrant looking Into. In my case anyway. If I get time I'll have a look at my car see if can identify where it rocks and why.

Thanks kink for that info...

I actually managed to fix this today i pulled the drivers seat out and had a look underneath there was a bolt missing god knows how...i dont think it could just fall out.

I replaced the bolt using one from my old seat and it fixed the issue thankfully.

I now wish i had checked my old mb3 4 yrs ago to see if it was this bolt missing or something else.....cant be bolts missing on all those affected as you say it would be weird.

Have a look soon and post back here what you find..

 

Actually...i just had a thought, it could be the bolts (theres 2) are loose and need to be tightened up??

Worth having a look as this can be really annoying as in my case.

This is on the seat belt side, there is same bolts on other side but depends which side the seat is rocking on.

First pic u can see where i removed the bolt from my old ones.

Hope this helps

Nice bit of info Kal, thanks for sharing this. I reckon with the age of these Civics now there will probably be quite a few having this issue.
