    Dear all,

    Has anyone else had a really annoying loud squeak from their seat. It seems to be coming from the back, right hand side and is only present when going around a left corner.

    Its getting louder...

    do you think i should take the seat apart, clean everything and put it back together, or should i just loose weight ?

    (their black recaro S3 seats. )

    Cheers

    i know what it is - its the catch that holds the seat to the body- lay the seat down and you'll see what i mean - even if you dont think it s that , wrap some insulation tape around it and place the seat back in its normal position. I had put high density foam around the seat edges , etc, etc , but the problem was the catch/clip arrangement .
