#09-08-50-009A: Scraping/Moaning/Creaking Noise from Front Seats (Apply Lubricant) - (Jun 4, 2009)
Subject:Scraping/Moaning/Creaking Noise from Front Seats (Apply Lubricant)
This bulletin is being revised to add the driver's six-way power seat creak condition. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 09-08-50-009 (Section 08 - Body and Accessories).
Models:2010 Chevrolet Camaro
Some customers may comment about a scraping or moaning type noise coming from the front of the front seat track area. This condition occurs when the seat assembly is being cycled into the full forward position. Some customers may also comment about a creaking noise coming from the driver's six-way power seat when it is in the full rearward position. This condition only applies to six-way power seats.
This scraping or moaning condition may be caused by the seat position sensor (SPS) making contact with seat position sensor target bracket. This contact is made in the lead in area of the SPS. This contact area controls the function of the SPS. The drivers seat creaking condition may be caused by the lack of lubricant in the rear of the drivers seat track assembly.
The application of a lubricant to the contact area of the components will eliminate the noise. Use the following steps to apply lubricant to the seat position sensor target bracket, located on the inner seat track and to the rear of the drivers seat tracks.
- <LI type=1>Move the seat assembly to the rearmost position. <LI type=1>Locate the seat position sensor target bracket on the seat inboard track. <A href="#oth4-2287946">Passenger Seat Position Sensor Target Bracket Location

Coat the full length of the bracket and ensure the coating extends at least 10 mm (0.40 in) from the edge of the bracket as shown. <LI type=1>Cycle the seat to the full forward position and verify the concern is corrected.
<LI type=1>With the drivers seat in the full forward position, locate the rear of the inboard and outboard seat tracks.
<LI type=1>Using a small screwdriver, pry off the two seat track end caps.

Repeat the application on the second seat track. <LI type=1>Insure the lubricant covers the area where the lower stops make contact with the upper seat track stops.
