    My only advice is "get used to it" and it'll go away.

    I don't even hear my seats squeak anymore (and they've been squeaking for years). Of course it helps that my clutch pedal, center console, blower fan, etc are all squeaking now too, so...

    There was another thread just this past week (maybe it was you?), where a guy tightened everything he possibly could on the seat...

    ...and it changed nothing.

    Hektor is asking about the seat, not the clutch pedal

    Had this issue and gleaned the net. At any rate, what I found was that the four seat cushion bolts (12mm) were loose. I had taken this seat apart less than ten months ago and tightened and found out they loosened again. I removed, again yesterday, and re-tightened - I added Loctite blue (242) and the squeak is now gone. Don't start hacking the pins without checking these seat pan bolts first. My trunk - 1997 Tacoma.
