creaking front seats!

Mon Jan 10, 2022 11:38 am

Newish owner here ,Hello :D
2016 5ghs
Owned the PHEV nearly 2 months now and beginning to get used to some of the quirks but both driver and passenger seats creak ever time you move its beginning to annoy me now, anyone had same and cured it easily? Sounds as if 2 materials are rubbing together in the seat backs??
Cheers

As you can see, I've been here a long time now but don't recall this ever coming up before and is certainly not an issue with my 2014 car.

However, as you can't know how the car has been used previously - e.g. very heavy loads pressed up against seat backs, kids hanging off them or just bigger than average users, this sounds like a car specific problem - sorry. :(

On second thoughts the "5" was a UK dealer special, if I remember correctly, with the seats being replaced on arrival with leather ones, so there is more of a chance of poor quality fitting. See what your dealer says. :!:

Weight Watchers :D Unfortunately i'd probably be the thinnest there so its not that that's causing the problem :lol:
It was evident on another one i looked at and that was a 4H so don't think its to do with it being a 5. Only done 17K miles and by condition of interior i don,t think previous owner went to WW either ?
Seems to be inside the actual seat back when press on it when not sitting in it???
Surely some one has had it as well??
