msport seats creaking plastics

Can anyone tell me how to stop the creaking and cracking noses the plastic seat sides make at the base of the seats in my car? This is driving me insane, it sounds like a korean built shitbox from the 80's. In fact its emabarassing when you have people in the car. Whenever you touch the plastics or move in your seat it creaks and groans. Its not the leather its the plastics themselves.
Any suggestions? Sprays, removal, revised part.

I would suggest taking it back to the dealer if you cannot find the source yourself.
Does it creak when you move around in the seat then?
possible to get someone else to sit in whilst you try and troubleshoot?

Unless you're grossly obese, I agree with taking it back to the dealer.

I had the same annoying cracking when i first bought the f10 but it went away after a month or two. dont worry about it. i guess it is about the weight resistance that seats adapt with plasticswith time. hope this helps.

If the dealer doesn't to do anything about it, I'd raise with BMW. They should deal with these sort of things. BMW engineer the car to quiet and refined and they should be creak and rattle free.

If you wanted a car with creaks and rattles, you'd buy a FSO pokenez!
Don't know what one of those is, have a lok at this, Jeremy Clarkson (Top gear) reviewing one.
