    Default Arm rest, Centre creaking... Anyone?

    Anyone sorted this out or had it...

    Thought i was pretty lucky as there's been non on the vec, every other vaux i had i've stripped and put back together with rubber washers and grease! probably an OCD

    Anyway, it tends to happen when brake and accelarate. when elbows on it - it doesn't do it as much... do you reckon its just the hinges that need greasing or do the all tend to do it?

    Mine is creaky too; let us know if/how you sort it.

    Thought about silicone spray?
