Passenger Side Noise

Anyone have creaking noise coming from the empty passenger seat? I wedged my hand between the seat and console and it appears to stop. Anybody have the same problem and how to fix?

I have the same noise when the seat is all the way back.

Same here. Although changing the positioning of the seat does make it less squeaky.

Check for the rattling of seat belts as the side bolster on the passenger seat does not allow the seat lets to be fully retracted back to its original position. Small design flaw, but annoys the heck out of me.

Are you sure it is coming from the seat and not the door? Try lubricating the rubber door seals. If they are not properly lub'ed, they can squeek.

I think I may have found the noise. The side skirt on the passenger side. When I pushed down on it I think I replicated the noise so I sprayed the hell out of it with lithium grease. Now I need to take a test ride and I hope that was it.
