Anybody ever had the problem of having squicking noise from the center armrest when you press down against? What will the dealer do to fix it? it's bothering me.

Mine was the hinge at the back where it joins the center console.

If it's the release clasp at the front I'd take it in....I wouldn't want to squirt that all over the front facing.
Warranty replacement !!!!:lmao:

hm... I've also noticed that after the inside of the car gets warmer, it kinda disappears. WD40 eh? wouldn't that make your car greesy all over the place ?

just a quick shot right at the hinge....work it back and forth once or twice....no probs....

open the window tho....it's a little strong for a second or two:thumbup:

Ok, I'll "suggest" the WD40 solution to my dealership when I bring the car in to repair my cruise control. :(

or they can always feel free to change a new one for me. :D
