    Creaky passenger seat

    As above, my passenger seat seems to creak almost constantly, i think its the outer plastic panelling thats creaking against itself or the bottom of the outer bolster.....safe to say its doing my nut in!!

    gonna have a look this weekend and maybe wedge some card here n there....has anyone else had this problem?

    i get that from time to time, it must be something to do with the height, tilt & lumbar setting.

    I posted this question a while back, but mine i think was more leather agains the plastic. I noticed it happens more when cold, I think the leather needed softening, I bought some leather softner from halfrauds and applied it to all the leather parts on my seats including in between the plastic on the sides, seemed to work for now......

    I find it's the opposite in my car, (A3 with cream leather) the seats start to squeek when the interior has been cooked from sitting in the sun all day. I got some silicon spray and blasted a little around the mechanism when tilting the seat forward and the squeek has gone for now - let's see how long that lasts heh?
