Default My Driver Seat Creaks..

Anybody know what I have to grease to get the driver seat to stop creaking? I'm a pretty big boy, 6' 2", 275 lbs. When I accelerate, even moderately the seat creaks. Happens going around corners too. I have the power seat in an
'08 Touring edition.
Thanks,
Matt

Get some silicone spray and have at it. The silicone drys clear, and the odor disappears after a bit.

Good. Just spray anything tha moves I guess. That sounds way easier than using white lith.

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,

Let me know how that works out. My 06 Touring Vert does the same thing and I am a bit heavier than you.

Hey Santa,
Bought a can of silicone today. I moved the seat all the way forward to try to see where the noise comes from. Nothing seems loose. I sprayed the track but I think the noise comes from the pivot points of the seat back. I think there's some rubber bushings in there but hard to see. I sprayed there but I'm not sure that will fix the problem. Driving around will tell me if I fixed it or not...
Matt

the seat in my 03 GT was creaking. I removed the head rest and sprayed down the holes. It got on the seat springs and fixed the problem! Took 3 or 4 times.
