Default 2019 Ram Promaster Winnebago Travato Seat Squeak

Hello - the most irritating noise went going down the road is that the passenger seat squeaks. Has anyone had this issue and found a fix for it? It sounds similar to an old fashion bed spring. Between that and a few other noises sometimes I fell like I am driving a bus. 2019 Ram Promaster Winnebago Travato

I have a different van model and swivel seat, but here goes.

My seat started to squeak. I thought it had to be something in the center swivel mechanism since that's the only moving part I could think of. A thorough lubrication had no effect.

Turned out to be the locking pin that (secures the seat when driving) was rubbing inside its' hole in the swivel base. Go figure.

Squeeks full or empty?

My seat only makes noise when someone's in it. And the problem is not the seat.

Ha. My seat only made noise if empty. Like rowiebowie mine was a locking pin rattling.
