Annoying squeaky passenger seat

It's driving me insane I can deal with Jeep noises but this is ridiculous it's loud as hell and it's almost constant I have sprayed and sprayed with silicon lube and grease and nope nothing works in fact it made it worse, it will stop when I grab the top of the seat but it's mainly coming from the front left bracket, please help if you have fixed this thing

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Use break free clp from walmart. By far the best lubricant I have used. I had the exact same problem. If clp doesn't work use real grease like something you would shoot out of a grease gun. You need something that will last and won't dry up.

My seat started doing the same thing. After checking all of the bolts I noticed one of the clear rubber bushings on the roller was broken and fell apart. That was causing the seat to move and squeak while driving. Haven't found a replacement yet.

silicon lube is not enough. I uses some lithium grease on the tracks and rotate the plastic wheels a bit its a bit quite now.

Try pushing it all the way forward or all the way back. Mine has the same problem, once someone sits in it an moves the seat location, but once I push it all the way forward and then all the way back again, something seems to line up and no more squeak. Of course, this may only work for me, but its free. You may be able to find a position along the track that squeaks less.
