Creaking Drivers Seat

Over the past few hundred miles or so, I have noticed that my seat has developed a creak that seems to be coming from the lower cushion. Not a serious issue obviously, but its annoying as hell. Anybody else have this problem? I'm inclined to have my dealer look at it the next time its in.

Guys, I'm swinging by my dealer on Friday for a free oil change, and the service dept has a heads up that I want them to look at it because I find it unacceptable in a car that is 2 months old. It has actually gotten progressively worse for me, and it does it in all positions. I'll post back here and let you know what they do for me.

My driver's seat was creaking about an hour after I left Taco Bell, but I'm pretty sure GM won't cover that.

LOL, i haven't had either creaking issues in my car yet. Trying not to do the second creaking yet. Usually try to make it 3 months before pumping one in the seat.

I've had my seat creak but htought nothing of it at first.. Now it may drive me nuts..lol... Actually this is not a concern for me unless it gets worse... The faulty transmissions are my biggest concern.

I was hoping I could get past it, but it's just too annoying when I'm not cranking my music. I really don't see any excuse for an issue like this.

It's probably just a loose cushion inside the seat.. It should be covered under warranty, let them send you a new seat if its really bad.. I won't bother with it though.. I'm more worried about the big issue of the manual tranny's shaft busting in two if I hit it hard with launch control a few times at a track..

Same problem here. Took about 2 weeks for it to start. It appears to be the seatbelt lock. When I rotate it forward, it stops. Don't know how to get ride of it though.

I had the same problem (some noise coming from the passenger seat). I moved the entire seat forward a little bit and it went away.

Exactly what it is. After reading your post, I tried wiggling the seat belt lock and it made the sound. If I push it forward a little, the sound stops.

I also noticed the same... I guess next time I'm at the dealer I will ask them to replace the seatbelt mechanism....

Ok guys here is your fix,

I had the same problem with my 2SS/RS drivers seat. It does sound like it's comming from under the car, but it's not. The seat is ok, they need to replace the whole seat bracket that the seat bolts onto. The fixed all my popping sounds, I hope this helps you guys.

There is a tech service bulletin fix for this!

My dealer said that GM issued a tech service bulletin for this which required them to lubricate the track mechanism. They did it for me in about a half hour. Problem solved.

That doesn't make sense cause the sound is DEFINITELY coming from the seatbelt latch. If you hold the seatbelt in the sound goes away.

#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)


Models: 2010 Chevrolet Camaro




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Condition
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.

Cause
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.

Correction
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.

Move the seat assembly to the rearmost position.
Locate the seat position sensor target bracket on the seat inboard track.
Passenger Seat Position Sensor Target Bracket Location




Passenger Seat Position Sensor Target Bracket




Driver Seat Position Sensor Target Bracket Location




Driver Seat Position Sensor Target Bracket




Apply a thin coating of Super Lube with PTFE, GM P/N 12371287 (in Canada, use P/N 10953437), or the equivalent, to the top and bottom of the driver and passenger seat position sensor target bracket. 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.
Cycle the seat to the full forward position and verify the concern is corrected.



With the drivers seat in the full forward position, locate the rear of the inboard and outboard seat tracks.



Using a small screwdriver, pry off the two seat track end caps.



Apply a thin coating of Super Lube with PTFE, GM P/N 12371287 (in Canada, use P/N 10953437), or the equivalent, to the front side of the two stop tabs identified by the arrows, as shown. Repeat the application on the second seat track.
Insure the lubricant covers the area where the lower stops make contact with the upper seat track stops.
Clean up any excess lubricant and reinstall the two seat track end caps.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
