Squeak found-seat

Found the source of an annoying squeak today. My center console armwrest is rubbing against the side of my front passenger seat. It seems the center console isn't very well centered; there's about a 3/4" gap between the driver's side seat and the armwrest while the side of the passenger's seat makes contact with the armwrest.

How do your arm rests look? Are they centered between the seats? Do you have similar squeak inducing contact?

It isn't the center armrest/console that's off, the passenger seat is often mounted to close to the center console. Quality Control is severely lacking on the 2014 WK2's. One thing I noticed that is done correctly vs my 2012 Overland is that the dashboard is centered correctly. On my 2012, the dash was off to the right to much.

Re: Squeak found-seat

Do you think it's fixable?

You could try loosening the 4 nuts that retain the seat tracks to the floor and move the seat away from the center console. Seat is pretty heavy, so it takes a good shove to move it. But from the few I have looked at with this problem, the upper backrest needs to move outward independently from the seat bottom. That I imagine would require more disassembly.
