    Hey guys,

    I have a 9-seat 2016 Yukon XL. The middle seat in the front row folds down into a good sized center console with three cupholders. The problem is the driver's side armrest on the lid is super squeaky. If my arm barely touches it, it squeaks. This drives me crazy! Is there any way I can take it apart and fix the squeak?

    No problem. You asked if you can take it apart and I answered. :)

    Seriously tho, post a pic and WE will look and give you OUR opinions.

    Post a picture of the console? There is no visible damage or anything to see. If you don't have a helpful response, please just continue your browsing...

    See, now that is helpful. Thank you. I didn't expect everyone to be able to help, but someone else may have a similar problem and maybe even a solution. That what I was hoping for.

    Silicone spray works wonders on the squeaky plastic pieces in these trucks and it will not hurt the plastic.
