creaky drivers seat

so, i'll be the first to admit that i'm a bit portley myself lol, and this is the first car i've ever had with automatic seats and whatnot.

i've recently begun to notice my drivers seat is getting a bit more creaky...and i've only had the car for a year now. i also noticed that when moving it backwards on the rail, it shudders a bit when it hits a certain part of the rail. it doesn't do this going forward though.

now i mean, i can chalk it up to my fatass weighing down on the mechanics of the seat lol but has anyone else noticed any creakiness or any shuddering/shaking when moving the mechanism back and forth? i keep my seat rather flat..i don't do the angle backwards at all. i have it so the lip is all the way down, and i just raise the *** up slightly so i'm not too low to not see over that hood bump.

just hope the power seats don't crap out or anything..maybe the cars just telling me to lose some weight? lol

I have the same problem. I'm not skinny 240lbs 6'; however, I have some of this also. It's not too bad. I don't hear much of anything really when I have the stereo on combined with intake and exhaust noise, not to mention the other little quirks lol. I for the most part don't have to adjust my seat since I don't use the back seats and nobody else drivers her but me. My boss has a v6 and his heaters went out pretty quick, but the adjustment is still going strong.

hmm ok cool. yeah, i only noticed it recently with the stereo off, and was like, hmm, that's new. i hardly ever adjust back and forth, but i had to for some reason and noticed it started after that..maybe it molded into a groove fromw here i always sat or soemthign? either way, i hope it doesn't crap out! lol

You should be able to see grease on the tracks. If not, get the dealer to do it. Or alternately try adding some of your own silicone grease or something similar.

Another thought...get a 160+/- lb. person to try it to see if it makes the noise before visiting your friendly dealer.
