I've got my first squeak in my 2014 GS ... the damn foot rest.  It only squeaks when it is cold and stops after about 20 minutes when the car gets warm.

Anyone got any ideas how to cure it or should I just move to a warmer climate?

Turn the radio on a little bit louder works brilliantly in the cold mornings when car is a little bit more rough :)

do you mean the surface squeeks against you shoe or there is some movement in it?

Surface Squeak I think. It seems to happen when I move my foot. It happens with both my leather sole shoes and my walking shoes so I don’t think it is my shoes. 

Maybe be some silicone cleaner will fix it.

Drive barefoot :) 

It is a thought. Technically it would only need to be my left foot shoeless. 

It is worryingly that a little squeak is my only major moan (if you ignore the inability of the CD player to display track details)

I thought I'd got a squeak in my 2002 IS300 the other day. It seemed to be coming from the armrest area and I was all ready to set the car on fire and push it off a quarry edge when I realised it was the sleeve buttons on my Austin Reed tweed blazer. Unfortunately Austin Reed as was went into administration in 2016. If only everything in life could be as reliable as a Lexus.

According to the Driving Standards Agency – the body that regulates the UK driving test – “suitable shoes are particularly important behind the wheel. We would not recommend driving barefoot because you don’t have the same braking force with bare feet as you do with shoes on.”

I better start working on some decent hard skin.
