Strange Creaking Sound

Behind the drivers side seat and the passenger seat I get a strange creaking sound from the air bag sections, anybody know what the noise could be or what could be the cause and solution?

Thanks

Re: Strange Creaking Sound

Is it the seat creaking or just from around that area?

I had a creak it took ages to find, turned out to be the passenger door window seal, at the very top, the creak stopped when the window was dropped slightly, silicone spray sorted it.

I've also driven a 147 with a creaky seatbelt, but didn't investigate as I only had it for a few days.

Hope you get it sorted,

Hellp mate,

Yes, check to see if your seat belt buckle is rubbing against the edge of the chair. The factory fix on the new models is to stick a piece of fabric to the seat belt buckle where it meets the chair!

Re: Strange Creaking Sound

It sounds like it is coming from behind the seats and not from them, I thought it could be the covers for the airbags, but I am unsure.

I will check the seat belt fittings though as well.

Re: Strange Creaking Sound

I've finally had a look at the interior and had a thorough investigation.

Whilst sat in the back seat I gave everything visible a good going over and discovered that the rear door card are slightly loose around the door struts, and these when shaken about seem to be making the squeaking noise.

Would this be anything to do with chassis flex, as the noise doesn't happen during normal straight line travel.

Does anyone know of a fix for this?
