Default Seat noise

Recently I've noticed a "popping" sound when pressure is applied to the top of my seat. For example, when I go to get out of my car and there is pressure applied to my seat, it sounds like a metal on metal popping sound coming from right where the center of my back would be. Anyone experience this same situation? It's more of an annoyance and I looked but didn't immediately see anything that stood out. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a noise in my driver seat too. Its the "back" part. It seems like it can wiggle sideways alot more than the passenger seat and it squeaks. Anyone have any idea?

FYI it is not leather seats.

My seat seemed to shift and make noise when I would lean back or get in and out of the car, it turned out that the bolts the hold the seat to the slider rail were loose. Threw some 'blue' loctite on them and haven't had any trouble since.

I have a noise coming from my drivers seat as well. Only when it's really cold though.
