Anybody else getting a "stress creaking" sound when their elbow is on the sliding armrest? It is really annoying. I have put the armrest back to its rear most position and the noise seems to be lessened.

Mine still does it even after I permanently attached the sliding part to the fixed part with 4 screws.

anybody have a problem with both front door arm rest pushing in? Where the fabric ends and the black plastic door pull starts, the fabric is pushing in and creating a pinch point. I believe I will need to take the panel off to reinforce the back of the fabric so it does not push in. I appreciate the comments.

squeaky armrest

Yes, I also had this problem with my '13 RAV4 from the beginning.
I took pieces of thin foam packing material and using blue painter's tape, taped pieces of the foam to the inside edge of the the armrest. I haven't had a problem since! You can't see the foam when the armrest is closed.
