    Default Squeeky seat

    Hey everyone... I just bought a new 08 Rubicon, Ive had it for about 4 days now and today the drivers seat started squeeking... (and before you ask... no, im not a lard a$$) Im just wondering if that was a normal occurence in Jeeps or should I take it up to the dealer... the squeek sounds like an old car squeek anytime im turning or hit a bump.

    Check to make sure the bolts are tight holding the drivers seat to the floor. Welcome to the wonderful world of owning the jeep and the new game that you will eventually get good at called "what's that noise and where is it coming from?"

    I've got an '08 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon too...don't have the seat problem though. As miljeep suggested, check to make sure all the bolts are tight. You may also want to try putting some WD40 on a rag and wiping down the parts underneath. Dunno...just throwing out some ideas. It's got to be annoying.

    If that was my only squeak......when all else fails just do what the rest of us do; Turn up the radio!

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Since you just bough it, I'd take it back to the dealer and have them fix it.

    X2 I would be sitting at the dealers door tomorrow when they open.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    Take advantage of that brand new warranty! Sounds like it's something minor though. When I bought my TJ X in 2004, about a week after I got it home, the driver's seat actually broke at the recline hinges. Talk about difficult to drive to the dealership!

    Oh yeah...he has a warrantee! Dude, take that to the dealership and have them go through the trouble of fixing it. I forgot about the whole warrantee thing because I've pretty much killed mine (once it's lifted with the axles swapped out, you're done). Heck, I've even switched out the seats, so I'd have to fix my own squeaky seat problem. :/
