Squeaky driver seat

I have a 2011 X5 3.5d with 5000 miles. The car is great. Only one complaint-when I go over some larger bumps the drivers seat squeaks a lot. Sounds like it is coming from the springs in the seat. Is there anyone else out there that has experienced this problem? If so, what was the remedy?

Let me guess--you have the Multi contour seats? If you do a search there are plenty of threads--mine was resolved (mine was coming from the plastic by the seat buttons on the side where the squeak was).

Not just multi-contour - my sport seats are squeaky as well. Have been since day one.

As was mentioned, there are other threads on the topic.

I think all of us have had it. I just moved around the plastic area and that fixed it for awhile...
