Driver’s seat/steering wheel creak when adjusting

For the last few days, when switching from easy entry to driver profile and back, both the seat and the wheel creak & squeak when they adjust. I’m sure it just a lube job
Is it DIY or should a ranger sort it.
The nearest SC is a 200 mile round trip so that’s not really an option just for a creak!
You if can replicate it and record the sound Tesla will sort it under warranty. Not sure if it would be a Ranger though. Had a steering squeak, had to go in twice before they put enough lube on it...
I’ll live with it for the moment
As it happens, pre-warmed the cabin this morning and not a sound to be heard.
This afternoon cold cabin and creaking so I warmed it for ten mins and lo and behold... silent !!
Understandable. I’m a bit like that myself when I’m cold :D
