    Just wondering if there are any grease points on these seats? When they are swivelled round and used for sitting on they have developed creaks when someone moves on them. So just wondering if they need greasing or silicon spray somewhere on them.

    Mine has a simple self locking nut in the very centre. Try undoing that, lifting he seat off and greasing the two seat plates.

    Or quirt some motorcycle chain grease at it?

    I would try some silicone spray less messy you don't want to get your clothes covered in grease or oil.

    Are you sure it's not the person sitting on them that's creaking? :)

    There is a ball race in the centre may need re-greasing, or it may be the lock nut is has worked slightly loose, if you loosen the nut or it has worked loose apply thread locking compound when re-tightening.
