My seat on the driver side is very squeaky when I make turns, Does anyone know how to fix this problem? It gets louder and louder.

Typically, it's the seatlbelt anchor. Try a squirt of WD40 or a like product and see if that does the trick.

Yes, myself and many others. It's been awhile since since been discussed though.

Yeah, give it a try, hopefully that's all it is.

My car had the same problem with the drivers seat. I thought that the problem was with the screws that hold the seatbelt anchor (on the right side of the seat).

I removed the seat, removed the bolt that holds the anchor in place, then applied lithium grease. Problem solved.

Fortunately, I had lots of experience removing the driver's and passenger's seats.

Just a heads up to others. Most do not have to remove the seat to solve the squeaking.

Agreed! I removed my seat I because I already had experience removing the seats (installing
a sub and amp), and I wanted to see if I could prevent the squeak from returning by understanding how the whole assembly works.
