    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default squeeky front seat

    has any-one else got this problem or is it just me but the drivers seat is starting to propper do my head in with its squeeking, first of all it was only when the seat was adjusted but now its like it all the time, sounds like a dodgy old mattress and getting worse, and before any smart @rse says its to do with my weight it makes the noise when my son is sat in it and he weighs 6.5 stone wet through.... the dealers originaly said they cant find a fault so im stuck with it

    That's funny because this happened to me about six month's ago and YES it drove me nuts
    From memory i think i lowered the seat and totally moved it in all postions then put it back to how i wanted it and the noise stopped. Forgot until this post that i had this problem

    Is there anyway you could get into it with wd40? Try pumping & tilting seat right up and try and get into it that way from underneath

    Ditto - have had a squeaky driver's seat since car new 9 months ago. Brought car in for it's first service and they quizzed me to figure out where the noise is coming from, upshot is they have ordered a new seat base. Heard also the lumbar support setting can causes squeaks!

    Also my boot trim was split the part that covers the boot lock. they changed that there and then.

    glad that worked for you m8 but mine is not stopping in any / all positions

    looks like a call to the dealers is needed
