Front Seat Squeak

I recently noticed that my front driver's seat has a "squeaking" sound when I put pressure on it. If I push right against where your back goes, I get this squeak or grinding type of sound. Like there are two sheets of rubber rubbing against one another on the inside of the cushion. Doesn't happen on the passenger seat.
Anyone have this? I also noticed that the door panel does the same, but again, just the driver's side.
It's irritating!

We gotta figure this out folks. There must be a fix. I think I'll pull my seat out this weekend and see if I can get inside the cushion to see what's squeaking. It drives me crazy.

I'm game, but this weekend i'm going flyfishing with my dad, so its gonna have to be next weekend for me. I was wiggeling some stuff under there tonight, and notice one part (not sure) that seemed to be moving that shouldn't be, so thats where i'm going to start. It was under the front right corner....don't know if that helps you out at all. I'm gonna go nuts after this little squeak and get'er done!!

You guys likely have this all figured out by now. There are two pegs located near the floor bolts on the front of the seats. Those pegs are what causes the squeak due to metal rubbing on metal. Take the seat out and cut the pegs off with a hacksaw or dremal (spelling?) tool. No more noise.

Simple fix. Good luck.

Exactly, the pegs under the seat. I took my 2010 Tacoma In today bc the seat squeaking and they realized it was the pegs rubbing the metal. The dealer cut the pegs down and its perfect now. Tightening the bolts will not work it just prolongs the noise to get worse overtime.

had the same problem here's the Fix for me. hope it woks for you guys as well.

Take the bolt out completely in the front. take wd 40 or grease and wipe it on the back side of the bolt head (( do not spray the wd 40 )) rub it on just a little bit not a lot same for the grease. then put the bolt back on and your good to go. Remember you only need a little.

I have the same squeeking on the drivers side of my bench seat. I am having a hard time finding the peg that may be causing the noise. Is it visible before removing the seat? Any tips and/or tricks to make this as easy as possible? I would really like to avoid taking my truck in for this if its an easy fix. Thanks.

They should be very easy too see. If I remember right, I unbolted my entire seat and leaned it back. From there I sawed off the pegs. I didn't even saw them flush, just enough to stop that freaking noise. I thought about greasing them but you might as well chop them off. PM me if you have any questions.
