Passenger seat is making “creaking” type noises only when there is someone seated there.
I have tried a couple of different seat positions and doesn’t seem to mak a difference.
I drive alone a lot and my drivers seat makes no noise at all but with a passenger I am getting these annoying noises, usually from a dead stop or going over a speed bump or even making a turn.

My driver seat just started creaking, primarily during acceleration. Appears that it is coming from the bottom of the seatback. Hoping it goes away.

I thought mine was creaking but found it was the seat belt 'cassette' thing it feeds into. I've had both sides do it but a quick tug on the belt usually stops it. Not mentioned it to service as I figure down the road they may have a part revision.
