Although I got used to the squeaking sound of my Stilo's front seats it makes the car feel cheap. I read about greasing the wires and springs in some threads so with that in mind I opened up the front seats. When I finally found where the noise was coming from I thought of an other idea to solve this. The wires in the seat have a thick black plastic coating to avoid metal to metal contact. When the coating wears out the squeaking begins. Plastic tubing can be used to replace the function of the coating and stop that annoying noise.

Before we begin a few safety warnings:

The Stilo front seats have airbags in them, of course you don't want them to inflate. Work carefully or disengage the airbags.

Preferably wear gloves as the steel inside the seat is pretty sharp. Just a small cut can lead to nasty blood stains on your seats.
