    Creaky seat?

    I notice lately when I lean back into my seat, I hear a "creaky" noise, kinda like leaning into an old wooden rocking chair.

    Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    slide the seat forward as far as it will go and there should be two bolts under the seat like they slide in the trax, it will be covered in grease (my 2003 was) and I would have to tighten mine from time to time

    I have the same problem too. But the bolt broke into 2 when I try to tighten it.........So I had to drill out the bit that got stuck and replace with a longer bolt and with a nut to secure at the other end. I also add a bit of rubber padding shaped like a washer between the frame and the bolt. It would seems the way it was constructed, the railing and the seat bracket is not a perfect fit. As u tighten the bolt as much as possible, u could still see a gap and it is this what caused the noise. Btw the bolt I am referring to the front one. And I thought I was the only one having this problem...hahahaha
