    does anyone else have a creaky drivers seat? when i get into the car in the AM and lean back to get comfortable and situated, the seat creaks. when i make a slow right turn in my neighborhood and the car body rolls, the seat creaks. started about a month ago but getting worse. :crying: just wanted to get any feedback on TMC before contacting service.

    I had a similar issue with my driver's seat. The creaking got steadily worse until it started driving me crazy. It was something inside the seat, I could cause it if I rolled my back along the seat in a particular way. The SC took a look, decided it couldn't be repaired, and replaced the seat. I had to wait a month or two for the part to arrive. Better talk to the SC and get the process started, just in case.

    I once had this. They tightened a few bolts and all was fixed.

    I too have this. My SC could not replicate though. I've found that if I change my lumbar settings the creak goes away. Not a good fix but at least the creak is gone.
