Squeak from drivers seat or console?

I have this annoying squeak either coming from my driver's seat or console area. I plan on hunting it down this weekend but didn't know if anyone else has had this problem. Thanks.

Bet it's the seatbelt receptor on the driver's side. It was driving me crazy until I found it. After buckling in, the receptor is angeled forward just enough to rub against the leather seat. Just pivot the receptor back a bit and squeak disappears.

I have a slight squeek if the cabin is hot from sitting in the sun, it lasts for a few minutes, especially when going over slow staggered bumps. I cannot have a creaky car, that's one reason I don't by Ford. It is in my roof liner/A pillar area. they are going to pull the cover and hopefully not dig too deep to find it...I will update when Gomer finishes his diagnosis. :(

I get a squeak/tick when I hit bumps. I found it to be the gray plastic over the gauges. I just push it to the side and it stops.

I have the same squeak. Sounds more like a spring than anything else. Hope there's an SB coming soon.

Same here, I actually got so annoyed one time that I punched my dash. I think its the trim on the dash on the driver side that little piece seems to be loose or something...

I had a squeaky seat months ago, the dealership lubed the drivers seat position sensor bracket. (Exactly what it says on the work order I just looked up)
Problem solved.

I have the same seat squeak you guys are talking about. It came around about 2 months ago. I looked alot of places trying to diagnose where it was coming from. Finally figured out its under the seat.

I found the TSB for it.

Going to lubricate the target position sensor and bracket myself. No sense in taking it to the dealer for something a 4 year old can do. Plus, I found a couple things under the seat that need improving/modifying.

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.
