Annoying noise from drivers seat cushion! Is this normal?

My drivers seat back cushion (lower part) makes an annoying creaking/popping from the seat cushion. Almost seems like it's from where it rubs or touches the bottom seat cushion. Every time I move in the seat it makes this noise. Anyone else experience this or know how to fit it? Here's a video of what I'm describing:

I have a noise that seems to be coming from the seat back not the base. At least to my ears. It's more of a creak. It happens when I take a left turn. SC claims they can't replicate it but next time I take it in, I'm going to do a test drive to prove to them. It's a very annoying sound.

I had the same issue, January 2021 build. First time I took it in they oiled it up and the sound disappeared for a day. Next time they replaced the seat base and they said their was a service bulletin regarding the issue. Good luck it was annoying!

My service guy was telling me the noise is from when I lean in the seat and the seat pushes against the center console. I miss my 2018 Model 3, no creaks or rattles in that one. was a perfect build

There was a label tag on the cable just under the seat trim by the door near the floor that was making a crinkling noise on mine. I was able to reach behind the plastic trim and pull the label off.

Have you tried adjusting the lumbar and other seat controls to see if that makes a difference?

I don't have any noises from my seats and I've been in them a lot, both driving and resting. I take frequent breaks and watch YouTube (and Netflix occasionally) and recline my seats so I'm adjusting them quite often.
