Default Squeak in seat fix

Well I couldn't take the squeak in my drivers side seat any more. This is the one when you get in and out of the truck and something in the bottom cushion squeaks. I did an online search for the fix and didn't find a good solution. I spent some time looking for the origin of the squeak and thought I would share what fixed my seats.

I fixed both sides, driver and passenger seats, so some of the pictures are mixed from either side.

Here is the fix:

First remove the lumbar adjustment ****, this is the most difficult part of the job. I was sure it was going to break but according to an online 'how to' Google, this was how it came off. The **** is to be pryed off, there are no fasteners holding it on. The **** popped off without breaking.




Next you will need to remove the retaining clip holding the reclining lever on. Do this by pulling staight up on the clip with some form of hook type tool.




After the **** and lever are removed you can remove the first panel by popping it out, starting from the rear. The front of the panel has a tab that coud break on the front of it if you tryed from that end first.




Next remove the inner panel. Three screws hold it on. The rear of the panel pops out.





Now lift up on the fabric and you will see two seperate sections of metal that are touching each other, this is where the squeak originates from.





Get a prybar and pry those two sections of metal apart from each other a little bit.




Put it all back together. And now you won't get irritated each time you get in and out of the truck.

very useful how-to. I've been bothered by that squeak and just figured I would put it off until I couldn't take it anymore before I tried to fix it. I'll probably be taking care of this soon now.

It worked, No more squeak! I was able to do it without removing the plastic sides, just lifting the side material up and used a long straight screwdriver.
