Interested to hear what others are finding out from service dept.

If you take out some of the lumbar in the unoccupied seat it should stop. Increasing the lumbar spreads the seat out slightly. Dealer said they could not fix, it is how they are. But...another forum member loosened his seat bolts on the floor, moved slightly then re-tightened and his noise was gone. In a side note the lumbar in driver seat "creaks" when I lean forward. If I take the lumbar our it stops.
Still have a diff noise in the passenger seat now I have yet to track down.
