    Anyone have thoughts of how to quiet side bolsters on front seats. They squeak badly when the press up against the center console.

    Your side bolsters don't rub or press on the console ?

    Try a very light coat of Talcum Powder between the bolster and the console. (Or better yet, have you checked the edge of the bolster to make sure there isn't something sticky there to enhance friction between it and the console?)

    Yeah, Same here 6'0" 205 and no rubbing. That's why I thought you might be a 300 pounder and laying the bolsters over. Might try loosening the four bolts to the floor and twisting the seat away from the console and tightening back down. Don't know if there is much or any play in the holes. Never needed to try this.
