    Anybody else have this?

    For the last few months my driver seat has been squeeking bad. Everytime I press the break or accelerator the damn seat snaps, crackles and pops!

    I took the seat out 2 weeks ago and looked at it. Could not pinpoint the area or reason why it was doing this. I sprayed a good portion of the underside with WD40 and the sound went away for about 2 days...Now it's back and worse.

    BTW, it may be my weight...I weigh about 220lbs but unsure of this is the cause. It's not a big deal but it does get annoying when driving thru stop and go traffic.

    Any ideas?

    Weight should not be a factor, I am the same weight as you...no problems. Have you tightened all the hardware? Perhaps it is internal, such as the internal frame, springs, hog rings, ect. Sure it is the seat?

    This may be of some help even though your out of warranty for it.
