Driver Seat Creaking

Itís driving me absolutely insane driving my wifeís GTS. I get a terrible creaking noise from the driver seat, coming from the plastic switch panel just under the left bolster. Any movement down to the bolster makes the plastic creak. Nothing seems loose so wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Any solutions or ideas?

Thanks for the reply and links.
But yeah, 100% certain it’s the seat. I can reproduce the noise just by moving the bolster or the bottom of the seat switch panel with my hand.

Trying to figure out how to remove all that side seat plastic to maybe cushion it with something.

Do you guys think Porsche would try to fix/replace any of this under CPO or dismiss as a wear item?

I had similar creak and fixed it with a piece of felt between the 2 plastic pieces where the 2 parts of the seat meet in the side
