2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

Dear Jeep god,

Are you mad at me? I don't understand. I have been a faithful Jeeper for life. I climbed up from the bottom (1986 Jeep Commanche 2.8L) to reach the mountain top and buy a SRT, and yet you strike me down with a squeaky passenger seat.

Why Jeep god, why?

The back story: When there is a passenger in the co-pilot seat, when accelerating/stopping or going over rough terrain, the seat squeaks. I have taken the vehicle to the dealership, they have acknowledged the squeak but said that they will need to take the seat apart to figure it out fully. Is there anyone who can help me out here? Anyone experience the same issue with their passenger seat (only when someone is sitting in it). The squeak is not coming from the dual pane sun roof, or anywhere other than the passenger seat itself.

Also while at the dealership, they ordered me new Brembo pads for the front of the vehicle as there was a loud nails on glass noise when stopping at low speeds. They said this will be covered under warranty. Additionally, they ordered me a driver side air vent since mine won't close (just remains open).

I AM LOSING MY MIND TO THIS SEAT SQUEAK. PLEASE HELP.

Thank you.

Re: 2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

My passenger seat squeaked also. I "excercised" the seat through all of its range of motion adjustments several times and the squeak has been gone for months. I think it is just some factory lube that is not fully dispersed in the joints of the seat. It was really driving me crazy every time I had a passenger.

Re: 2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

Ran the seat through all the range of motion a number of times. Still making squeak noise. Actually makes more noise now unfortunately when going over train tracks/bumps. Taking it to dealership tomorrow to get some work done on it, going to have them take a look again.

Re: 2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

The dealership could not fix the seat. They said that I would need to drop it off for at least two to three days for them to take apart the seat. Instead, I went to a Window and Trim place (Orlando's Window and Trim) and they did a few things to the seat. First things first, they bent the seat frame to reduce the amount of clearance there was. They said that the space in the frame was allowing the seat to flex and squeak. Additionally, they also oiled the whole track and frame of the seat. They said that it looked like there was nothing done from the factory in the way of lubricating the seat. Cost me $150 bucks but so far so good. It's way better than it was before and they really took the time to make sure that there was no sound coming from the seat. Made me step away from the cliff of selling the SRT.

Re: 2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

My driver's seat has started to "pop" or "click" whenever I go over a moderate pump. Seems to be on the rebound portion of suspension travel. For instance, cruising at 75mph on the highway, when I go over an overpass of a bridge, when exiting the concrete of the overpass and there usually is a dip, the seat will make a slight click or pop noise. At first I thought it was the upper left dash area.
