    Creaking Leather

    Hey people...

    Has anyones seats started creaking when they go over small bumps on a road???
    I know the leather gets old, but its so annoying......
    I have been told to use some leather shampoo to soften it up, just want to know if others on this forum have had the same thing and what they've done about it?

    Cheers!

    I had the same issue and managed to reduce the noise by applying leather cleaner and then leather conditioner. 'Liquid leather' is rated highly, but I can't comment on it as I have not used it before. You might also find that the plastic parts of the seat also creak if loose, so might be a good time to check those out also.

    Mine started creaking a while ago, I gave the leather a good clean with a decent leather cleaner then used raceglaze leather balm. It hasn't made a sound since!
