Default Corsair T2 squeaking

Hey there,

I bought my T2 Road Warrior chair a year ago and some months ago it started squeaking whenever I pushed my back to the chair and it tilted. At first it wasn't that bad but now it's VERY noisy. I can't use the chair comfortably anymore.

When I was taking a look at the chair I noticed something. In the following photos you can see a gap between the main chair support and the string support. I guess that may be the problem.

Thanks for your help!

Hey there,

My chair only squeaks when I lean myself totally backwards, so I just tighted the leaning knob on the front to prevent it from going way back. Solved partially with that and a lot of WD-40. Might as well try with a lithum-based lubricant in a future for better results.

Hey there, interesting to see the gap. Let us know how it goes, the chair does have a 2 year warranty and Support can help you further as well.
