Hi,
I noticed a squeaking noise coming from the driver seat.
I hear it when I push myself back into the seat, it seems to be coming from the lumbar support area next to the armrest.
Anyone has experienced this? Would this be covered by warranty?
Thanks!

I have heard this before and its related to the sponge in the seat that breaks down.
What kind of warrenty have you got on the car.

The car is one year old, I ***ume this should be covered by the 3 yrs warranty? Thanks!

Finally got to it, Honda dealers in Germany replaced the sponge without any cost. At first the leather on the seat appeared squished, it came back to its original form after sitting a while in the chair. Well done Mr. Wagner!

About an hour and a half - much less than it took me to reply to your post, sorry
