They don't seem to stock the parts, so plan ahead

mines sounds the same, its on occasion, not every time i get out of the car, so it doesnt bother me too much. When I first heard it, i thought the exact same thing until others started to complain about the seats is when i realized it was the seats and not the shocks which shouldnt happen to a new car.

Ya, I had the dealer do this, and then the squeak returned. When I get time I'm going to open up the back and see if the bushings moved around. Most likely we just need to put a little cloth tape in the right spot to stop the squeak.

mine seems to be coming from the middle and not the top, it sounds like a well broken in recliner

I tore apart the seat tonight, and found out that the TSB bushings are actually the 4 bushings 1,2,3 and 4 on the original picture here in the post. There may have been squeaking from those, but I don't think much.

So my taking it to the dealer for that TSB actually didn't do anything. My putting cloth tape tonight on 5 and 6 in the original picure DID do something. I also put preventative tape on more locations, 7-10.

NOW, there's 0 squeaks.

I hope to take detailed pictures of the passenger seat soon when I take that apart to tape it preemptively.

Anyone else have a drivers seat that is starting to wobble? The back seems solid but the base has a bit of vertical wobble in it.

After some googling it is common across most Subaru models, and I can probably fix it myself because from what I've seen online dealers will just tell you it is normal

Just makes me wonder what would happen in the event of a crash, though.

looks like there was a TSB for the Outbacks around 2010, i wonder if there is anything like that for our cars yet. you would think that with this problem (and the squeaking) happening for over 10 years they could eventually fix it?

The "engineers" at subaru sure made some nice seats...
Mines worse than ever. BROKEN recliner sound and feel. Will probably end up fixing them myself when I have the time.
I WANT Recaros so badly at this point.

If you sell your Impreza and get a Focus ST, you can get Recaros!

Open it up on a smart phone & take a screen shot. Or press print screen & paste it into a power point or paint program where you can save it as a jpeg.
