    I drive a 2008 Crewmax. For about two months now I've noticed a 'whistle' in the drives seat when I move/place pressure against the seat back. It is akin to air squeezed out of something making a high pitched whistle. Any thoughts on what this is or how to fix?

    By any chance do you have a seat cover that might be trapping air and what you are hearing is air escaping? Just thinkin.

    No seat cover or seat cushion. Sometimes on a rough road the whistle can be heard. It's like a bladder inside the seat sucking air in and out!

    The only thing in there as far as I know is the air bag components and lumbar stuff.

    The side "curtains" are up near your head. There are side air bags in the seat though.
