Active tourer squeaky armrest

Post by Kiwi » Sun Nov 13, 2016 4:03 am

Has any owners had this problem and a fix for it? I understand I could asked BMW service but thought try here first and then inform BMW.

Morning Kiwi

SWMBO hasn't mentioned anything about ours having this problem so I'm unable to advise unfortunately.

You've not got an 11 year old boy trapped in it, have you? I've generally got the same sort of annoyance emanating from the back seat... :lol:

I know this is an old post but my observations may help others who have the annoying squeak/rattle from the armrest. I noted that there are two rubber grommets on the upper section that, when closed, meets with the lower section. When cleaning the car I found the two grommets on the floor behind the driver's seat. I eventually realised where they had come from and replaced them. They are just a push fit and can be displaced quite easily. replacing them sorted all the rattle issues. One has subsequently fallen out but I have found it and replaced it. When I get time I will glue them into place.
