Driver's seat popping\creaking 2006 GTP

I have a 2006 Pontiac G6 GTP - The drivers side makes a popping sound when making turns. Because it is out of warranty, I'm trying to find out the cause myself. Is this a problem others have encountered? As far as taking the seat apart, how do I remove the lumbar adjustment lever?

OMG this blows.. I just heard that in my car today while driving back home, on bumpy surfaces and while turning i can hear some squeeqs coming from around seat area, but when I stopped I moved myself up and down and side to side while sitting and couldnt hear any squeeqs, maybe its not coming from the car seat area directly, but I definitely have squeeqs like if you jumping up and down on a old mattress.

My car is a G6 2006 V6 Base 4 Door BTW.....

OK, answered my own question on the lumbar support. Basically:

1. Pop the plastic seatback loose by pulling gently along the top to ease out two nylon fasteners

2. Once the seatback is loose, pull upward to remove the seatback from it's mounting brackets at the bottom 1/3 of the seat.

3. ease a long, flathead screwdriver between the left side of the seat and the plastic seatback. Then gently pry up two fasteners along opposite sides of the lumbar adjustment lever post. It takes some doing, but I eventually got it to come loose. Once the lever is removed, you can pull the seatback free.

4. With the plastic seatback fully removed, I added cotton batting (I know...ghetto, but who's going to EVER see it) to the back of the seat along any areas where the plastic seatback was rubbing the seat frame. This made a pretty significant improvement of the number of knocks I was hearing.

There's still a noise deeper in the seat, but I'm not going to dismantle the entire thing to get at whatever the cause is. I'm feeling lucky that made it this far without breaking anything permanently

Total time for the repair...less than 1 hour

Good luck!

None, if I want a faster car I'll buy one.
