    Just wondered whether anyone has a remedy to what seem to be a common bugbear, the cheap annoying, squeaking armrest.
    Dont know whether its only the leather or all but though id be clear.
    Thanks

    The simplest solutions are usually best. where would be best to apply? just around the base area?

    I'd imagine usually at any hinged section and see how you get on... always worth a try for the price of a tin of WD

    No problems.... Spray it on the hinge give it a good few swings up and down... helps clear any dirt, then wipe with a piece of kitchen towel or cloth and hopefully you should be all sorted :)
