Squeaky Headrest

Post by RustyZ4 » Tue Jul 31, 2018 5:34 pm

Well,, my headrest has decided to start squeaking in my ear, when I reach back and hold it, the squeak stops, I haven't looked properly yet, but I believe they are not adjustable, I wondered if they are removable at all?
If not, I am thinking get some leather cleaner and try and sort it, or if anyone has ideas how to cure this, much appreciated :thumbsup:

Is the back of the seat touching the bulkhead behind it?

I did check and no I don't think it is, it is close tho,,, it did it this afternoon with the top down, so im guessing it is where the seat and the headrest touch

I’d be very surprised if it’s the head rest.

I’d expect, as above, when you’re sat in the seat it touches the rear bulkhead.
