Squeaky V6/172 Drivers Seat

  Clio RS 172 Ph2

The nice leather/alcantara drivers seat in my Vee (but also fitted in the 172s)has developed a really spine tingling squeak when going over bumps etc.

It seems to be whenever the seat rocks, i.e. tilts back/forth slightly. Adjusting the height of the seat can improve it for a while but it comes back.

Ive tried spraying WD40 all round the seat base, the hinge area, etc., but again makes no difference.

Is this a common problem that I have to live with, or is there a cure for this, or an area which I maybe have missed with the old trusty oil can?!? Please help, its driving me bonkers when driving round town!

Mine creaks (if thats the word) thought it was my posterior causing the problem!! :oops:

No this is a metallic sound, not so much creaking, more sort of "screeching" its a real spine tingling sound.
