Seat squeak in rear seat, JKU 2012 2 weeks old

The rear solo seat has a sound like a styrofoam cooler rubbing together. It started after I folded the seat up the first time today. Very annoying. The only way to stop it is to have someone sit in it, sit in middle and apply hand pressure or to fold it. Any suggestions?

Make sure all the bolts to the floor are tight, when I first got my 07 both front seats squeeked, and neither were bolted all the way down. Drove me nuts for a couple days before I noticed the bolt heads sticking up a bit too far.

The bolts are all tight. The squeak appears to be where the head rest pivots so it can fold flat so I don't think lube will work but who knows.
