Default Squeaky Leather Seats

I just purchased a 2003 CL 320 and both front leather seats squeak like crazy. I mentioned it to my dealer and they just brushed me off (for now)! Has anyone had squeaky seats and what is the solution? I searched the forums and found nothing.

Thanks!

I had the same problem with my C240 2003 about 2 years ago just before the warranty went out. I leaved in San Diego California at that time and the dealer took care of it. I think they opened up the sit and changed the part that was going bad.

I took my car into an automobile upholstery shop and they fixed the problem...evidently it was springs against plastic (after they took the seat apart) so they did what they do...now my seat is quiet. Obviously not many people have had this problem as I had only one resonse. Warranty trail next.

Thanks!

Default RE: Squeaky Leather Seats

There are well documented sets of procedures for fixing squeaky seats and the dealer has access to them. I suggest you purchase a subscription to alldatadiy.com. It will list all TSBs and steps to fix things like this. I would post it for you, but the procedures for fixing the squeaks are a long list of troubleshooting techniques with pictures. Here is one TSB that someone mentioned above that pretty much fixed the issue as he mentioned:

A. Repair Instructions 1. To better analyze the seat noises, maintain the customer's original seat positions, including cushion angles and backrest positions. It is a good idea to also store the customer's seat positions in vehicle memory. Note: Seat noises can depend on individual seat positions involving the backrest and cushions as well as the manner in which customers enter and sit in the vehicle. 2. Analyze the noise problem with the customer present. Note their interpretations of various seat adjustments and resulting sounds from each seat and back rest positions. 3. Before performing any adjustments, be sure to unbolt the seat from the vehicle while keeping the electrical seat harness connected. 4. With the seat unbolted, use the seat control switch to move the seats over the entire adjustment ranges; i.e., all the way forward, back, up, down, etc. 5. Bolt the seat back into the vehicle. The majority of complaints will be remedied by simply loosening and refastening the seats. 6. If noise still exists, remedy with felt and lubrication as specified in the Noise Kit (see Parts Information). Use only the parts from this kit.

Greasey farts can sometimes help though they tend to stick to the seats and female passengers tend to bitch about it.

Default RE: Adjust seats

Fully expand and contract the seat, reajdust to your preferences, and the problem might go away. Ialso have a '03 C240 and my seats were squeaking for some time. Istill notice it every now and then but I tend to change seat positions when driving depending on the distance driven (or if my wife drives my car) so it manages to auto-correct itself.
