    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?

    remove the rear ashtray and check if the bolt is tight for the armrest

    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.
