The Big centre armrest in the front of my car has an annoying creak when leant on. Today I took a look at it and realised that the 2 catches either side of the lid seemed to be the cause. 

A quick search in the garage found a pack of small self adhesive backed felt pads 

One either side of the lid next to the catches and hopefully all is sorted.

Absolutely essential kit for anyone with an older car.

I don't suppose this fix works on old knees, hips, thumbs (etc) does it?

a little blast of 'dry PTFE lubricant' or similar often works wonders on squeaky plastic

Quite agree, but the location was unsuitable and the felt seems to have done the trick. Fingers crossed.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
