    Arm rest squeak?

    Anyone elses center arm rest noisy? Mine squeaks loads when i go over small bumps etc or move my arm slightly to change gear. Its just a general squeak from the whole thing moving within the center console, so not sure there is a lot that can be done, but does anyone have any ideas?

    Mine used to squeak as it rubbed against the plastic backing of the drivers seat. I just bought some sticky back felt and attached it to the side of the armrest, no more squeak!

    Just been having a look at it, dont think its possible to stop it. Whatever angle i move, touch or poke the rest from, it squeaks. Its just the way all the bits of plastic fit together, its not actually rubbing against anything. Annoying, as its such a good feature and i wouldnt be without it.
