Chair Squeak

My driver side seat squeaks when I move around in it, or if I drive over bumps in the road.

Anyone else have this problem?

I'm just throwing something out here... you seen that owl from your avatar lately?





On a more serious note, sorry, haven't heard this at all yet and I do drive over some bumpy roads here from time to time

Try this

Move everything that can move on the seat one at a time all the way in one direction then all the way in the other direction.

So all the way back, then all the way forward, then all the way up then all the way down, then reclined all the way back then reclined all the way forward......(you get the idea)


This often lubricates all the joints, eliminating certain squeaks

Unfortunately, running through everything a few times did not resolve the squeakiness.

I did learn however that the driver's seat can go further forward than I would have guessed.

Are these regular seats or sports seats?

Yes - simply have have the seat belt buckle bracket repositioned so that it doesn't rub against the seat rim. My dealer found it right away and it was an easy fix.

I found that the squeak in my E92 comes from the plastic parts of the seatbelt female end (whatever that's called.)
