Squeaky Drivers Seat!

All of a sudden, my drivers seat (not the back) is squeaking! Trying different positions using the electric control adjustments doesn't make a difference. Any small movement by myself will cause this annoying squeaking sound and I can't seem to pinpoint the source. Anybody have this happen to them? It's a 2010 Limited still under warranty, but taking it to the dealership seems a hassle at this time for such a small issue....

...Hmmm, seems to be a known issue...I'll look around the seatbelt area. I'm guessing you mean the latch that the seat belt connects to....

It's the seat belt buckle bolt. Needs lube. Lube it. Squeak will stop.

It's even more bothersome when it starts midway through your day, when nothing has changed with your vehicle configuration! Mine came from the shoulder strap on the brand new bag that replaced my old backpack. Kinda frustrating when I am trying to identify the source of the sound, and I move the bag over and the source of the sound changes position...
