Moo-ing noise...driver seat...2014 Overland

Is anyone else experiencing this noise?

It is located in the lower back region of the driver seat. If shifting your weight or leaning up then leaning back it make for lack of better terms...a moo-ing sound (almost like a cow).

I have experimented with inflating/deflating the lumbar, as well as, moving the lumbar up and down...no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe your leather seats are still alive.

I have this exact noise in the exact same place and it is very loud. I have taken it once to the dealer and they said it inflate it more and it will go away. 'It's normal for the bladder to do this.' Well it doesn't. Even if it did, it shouldnt solve the problem. I will be taking it for this again soon. My noise is a little more of a disgusting mooing. Kinda crazy...I'm thinking about recording the sound for the dealer. If i do, I'll try to post it here.

I noticed this noise the other day as well...not very loud but when I sit, then lean back it almost sounds like air escaping from the seat. Didn't find it too annoying though.

Re: Moo-ing noise...driver seat...2014 Overland

Mine does it, too. I'd describe it more as a creaky squeak, but it definitely comes from the lumbar bladder. I only notice it when I get in the car, never on the road. So I haven't done anything about it. My Overland has been perfect, otherwise. (Knock on wood.)

I'd love to hear from anyone that nails it down and gets it corrected.

Edit: I leaned slowly into my seat and you know, it does moo. Reminds me of those old toy cans that moo when you turn them upside down.

Have you tried turning the "udder" cheek to make the mooing stop?

Did anyone ever get a fix for the cow noises? My drivers seat started doing it today. It does not do it when the engine is running.

Nope. They are still maintaining that it is normal. It makes the noise all the time with me as it is the bladder in the lumbar. Depending on how much (or little) u inflate the lumbars, u will hear it.

Re: Moo-ing noise...driver seat...2014 Overland

Since it only happens before I start the car and I'm shifting my weight, I figure it's not worth messing with. (Especially, the dealer.)
