    Angry Creaking from the back seats....

    I'm not a happy chappy, lol. Since haveing my wheels done on friday the back of the car has been creaking and moaning, and not a good moan, haha.
    The car had to have the back seats down thursday and friday for transporting tyres around, i out the seats back up saturday and since then they seem to flex and creak on the drivers side, i'm pretty sure its the seats, had a look over the car while they fitted the wheels and all seemed fine and it was fine with the seats down, checked to see if they loose etc but there fine.
    They are now doing my tits in, any ideas?

    I get creaks for the front passenger seat if its in just the wrong position on the runners. The inside bolster rubs on the centre arm rest.

    hmmm, might try a different spot on the runners then, ive tried moving everything else and i have no arm rest...... think its where the plastic mouldings are rubbing - could do with sitting as a passenger as the misus is **** at diagnosing

    na mate, pull the plastic clip as if you are folding it forwards to lower the seats, they will pivot of two metal clips which will bend out of their seats to release the whole base

    Does re-fitting sort this? Mine do it. Mrs was so helpful in pinpointing it when she was in the back - "No I can't hear it, dunno what you're on about..."

    Hahaha well another mates mrs is Keith cheggers so she gets auto shotgun backs way too small anyhow

    I gave it a once over today while cleaning the car and noticed the loop for the latch was a bit worn and polished. Odd because the passenger side is mint. Chucked a bit of inox spray grease on it so fingers crossed its quiet. I doubt it though, it'd be far too simple.
