Blackjack, that should work. The squeak in my armrest stopped immediately. Now whenever I clean the interior, I give the hinge a little application of Cockpit. Don't know if it makes any difference but mine's a 2010 - squeak started at 800 miles every time I rested my elbow on it, very annoying.

Spraying Turtle Wax Ice on the hinge solved the problem for me. Interesting to see how long fix lasts.

I've got about 10K on my 2010 now and only had to apply Einszett Cockpit several times. The squeak seems to have diminished so I never notice it; in fact, I never bothered taking the 135i into the dealer since that's an opportunity for them to screw something up, which they have done a number of times.

Mine did that after months of having the car, I sprayed the joining points of the moving parts using "don't laugh at me" Zaino Z-CS Clear Seal, and I never heard heard of my armlet since ;-)
I did it in a despair move as the squeak was driving me crazy, so first I thought in my bicycle's chain lube but that would have generated an unpleasant smell inside the car, so my attention turned to Z-CS Clear Seal bottle... problem solved for me, with no odor and a bit of extra shine to the sprayed parts :-)

This happens on my car as well. Funny part is that it's not consistent or predictable. I frankly believe its temp related (heat from the tyranny).

My 135 feels pretty rock solid so I accept this as a charming flaw.

Wow, Never thought zaino zcs would be the product to solve this, but that is my rake away from reading this. I have zcs, so that would be doable. I think it is a silicone product but not sure. Probably a silicone spray/liquid of another sort would work too.

Mine is a 2011 and does this intermittently with temperature and road surface. Dealer of course couldn't replicate but honestly I can't always either.

I too think it is the rear cover piece.

Glad I found this thread. I'll have to try zcs sometime. Did anyone apply it in a cleaner manner than spraying it as a mist?

ZCS is a clean product, you don't have to worry about spraying it over the rear moving parts of the armset, it gives the plastic a durable shine :-)
