Does yours rub against center console? If so SC can adjust it to not to touch. Our S seat was rubbing against center console and SC was able to adjust them. I had no idea you can adjust seats left-right direction.
I noticed that my driver's seat squeaks when I get in/out of the car, make turns, accelerate hard...anytime I move in general. Any easy fix? It seems to have just started....kind of annoying like an old wooden chair.
Sounds dangerous - I think you should sell your car to me for cheap before you get nothing for it.
I think fastest response is just an impromptu drop by to SC just to have a tech just glance at it.
Little rattles like that are the worst to diagnose and resolve!
I was able to solve the flexing and squeaking of my driver's seat using a simple wedge as follows:
Hope that helps

Applied felt between seat and track to prevent excessive rubbing. Torques seat rods to body.
Pay Type: Warranty
Fixed. No more squeak.
Thanks for posting this. I presume that the Service Center had the entire seat pulled out to apply the felt — not sure if you saw them doing the work or asked questions about it? If the whole seat has to come out then that would be too big of a DIY for me Thanks!
Is your seat all the way back? If so, check out Brian's (i1Tesla YouTube) video on the subject from the spring. He is tall and has the seat all the way back. SC never did fix it, but he figured out the issue and fixed it himself.I noticed that my driver's seat squeaks when I get in/out of the car, make turns, accelerate hard...anytime I move in general.

Yes. Chock whichever wheels won’t get lifted. The diagonal one is usually a good bet.
If you have air suspension, raise it up and set “jack mode” to keep it from auto leveling while you are trying to jack the car!
So I spoke to the tech. He didn't remember my car specifically as it was last year. He has done this procedure before, and did not require removing of seat. I did not see them do the work as the car was picked up and transported. More or less he is looking for contact areas and placing felt, then tightening to body of car.
My thoughts if that doesn't work I would schedule something. Removing seats means putting them back in correctly. With drivers an passengers seats I hear those bolts are very important for saftey. I also think that would be above my pay grade.
Today I was more amazed I got him on the first ring at the SC.
