My solution

Not all seat squeaks are the same, but here's the solution I found for mine that may help someone.

PA . JAY my back seat is squeaks a lot .

flashman They have to design the Jeep seat to be flexible so it will take a beating without breaking. With that flexibility comes squeaks. Mine also had an annoying squeak I narrowed down to be the mechanism that releases the seat to slide back and forth.

While I haven't had time to come up with a permanent fix, I temporarily wrapped a bungee cord around the release handle and the seat frame to add extra pressure pulling down on the handle. Once I come up with a better/permanent fix, I will post.

SeaComms My drivers seat squeaks when ever the height adjuster is dropped down to the lowest setting. One pull up on the handle and the squeak is gone.

Or give it a few rides.... my passenger side squeak disappeared after about 10 rides with a passenger onboard... had the passenger move the seat up/back etc...
The old saying RTFM many times is a good idea...
lol- I guess I'll have to give the manual another quick read through

ordered a can of the lube you quoted
hopefully it helps
thanks

Kelsey73 My drivers seat squeaks all the time when my weight shifts at all. I'll eventually take it in, but not sure what they can do. I think it's the springs in the seat.

Zombie4x4 having the same problem as you except with my driver seat and have checked every bolt i can see and cannot find the cause at this point I'm just dealing with it as I'm going to replace them with some master craft or corbeau seats this summer.

seat squeaking & creaking

It's the little things that can be irritating.

A couple weeks ago, my passenger seat started to sqeak quite badly.
It does it when braking, accelerating and making left hand turns. It only does it when there is a passenger in the seat, I assume the weight makes the seat shift.
It's a rather audible and grating sound.


I've adjusted the seat & looked under it to no avail. Should I just start spraying wd-40 on every place it could be emanating from? If I took it to the dealer how badly would they laugh me away & would they just spray wd-40 on it or grease it (which may solve the problem for a couple weeks, before it comes back).
