FordService Hey folks!

A good first step to get the squeak out is to swing by your dealerships. Our pros are specially trained to track down mystery noises like this one. Keep me in the loop; if you need any assistance, just give me a shout.

My friends in Canada should feel welcome to call my Ford Canada colleagues at 1-800-565-3673.

YTBrown I had a squeak coming from under my left leg that seems to have gone away. Thought it was actually my clutch pedal at first. Haven't even bothered to have it seen to since I can't consistently reproduce. I also have an SE with sport package.

gdcwatt A squeeking driver's seat became an intermittant problem soon after taking delivery of my 2012 se with sport pkg, north of Toronto. The first time I complained, the dealer couldn't find a problem. At the next oil change, they were able to hear it. I weigh 200lbs, and tended to have this noise problem more often than my considerably lighter daughter.

My service invoice has the following info:

L#: 3; w/I/R: R; Labour Instruction: 81 Seat and Operation Concerns - check and report on driver side frt seat track squeeking when going over bumps. Correction - Parts ordered seat track part #cv6z5861705c.

The noise has not returned since the seat track was replaced, several months ago. Just to clarify, though, I'm not sure if it the bolsters that were my problem, or some other part of the seat.

i too find the driver's seat squeeks a bit on rough roads... the passenger seat tho does not... perhaps it the electrical equp. inside the driver elec. seat?
opinions or experiences anyone?
