E90 rear seat creaking SIB

On early E90's (I think those produced before 09/06), there was a problem with creaking rear seats. I know there was a SIB because I had a copy of it.

I'd like to have this fixed at my next visit to the dealer. But I've lost the SIB number.

I've searched and searched, but can't find it. Does anyone have a link to this SIB for creaking rear seats?

Thanks.

Do you have fold down rear seats? I'm starting to hear a creak at the rear too after 15000 miles
Which dealer you taking it in to? I have done service at Peabody a few times for other stuff but nothing really got fix for my car...not sure what the deal is

I have an 07 and I have this issue. Kind of dissapointing considering I just came from a vehicle that had creaking all over.(Passat)

me too, ive had it for 3-4 months now, and the last couple weeks, its been getting pretty loud.

anyway, i bought myself a can of jig-a-loo, for you who do not know what it is, its like WD40, but doesnt stain, and smells like a Pina Colada.

anyway, i folded down the rear seats and sprayed the joints and i havent heard a thing ever since....

best part is that that it doesnt smell like crap like WD40, doesnt stain(not even your clothes), and washes off your hands right away...
