Havn't had the isolator changed yet, not sure if there's a point?
Me three but it's only when making a turn and it's more like a click like something is shifting with lateral force. Dealers says everthing is tight. I don't notice it often but it's still there

I found a fix to the seat squeaking. Turns out the squeak only happens when the seat adjustment is all the way up and the back inclined. I found a comfortable adjustment lowering the seat a bit and extending out the wheel and the squeak is all gone now. If others Are having the same issue try readjusting the seat.

Re: Continued Problems

5th trip to the dealer for the seat squeak - it's gotten even worse. Also went in for my first oil change (got the free oil change coupon in the mail).

I took the day off from work so I could be there to make sure they heard the noise.
I found out some new things about the squeak. It occasionally happens right off the bat when you start driving, but if it doesn't, you have to drive for 10-15 minutes to get it ramped up. Once it starts, if you change the seat significantly in any direction, it will stop, but in 10-15minutes, it will start up again.
Once it starts going, you can put the car in park, shut it off, and shift your weight back and forth to get it going and hear it very clearly.

Took a tech for 10minute drive and we got it going...he pulls it into the garage and comes over 20min later and says he can't get it to happen but wants a senior tech to look at it as well. We get it going after another 10min drive and bring the car back to the lot, turn it off, and I get the squeak going worse than it's ever been before. I'm really happy I stayed there to really show them what was going on.
They looked at it for another 30min and finally decided that I'm getting a new seat cushion piece and some metal frame/bracket that goes under it and hooks to the rails.

Hopefully when they call me back when the parts gets in, everything is fixed!

Re: Continued Problems

I'm going in a week and a half to get the seat cushion replaced - funny thing is the squeak hasn't happened since that last time at the dealer...so when they took it apart, they probably just put it back together the proper way. At this point, however, with all the jumping and bouncing on it that they were doing, I'm going to have them put the new seat in anyways.
Also have to go in now because the left-right motor for my passenger side mirror is no longer working (about a week now).

Going to have them fix up the throttle delay and HVAC (2x TSB's) while I'm there as well.
