Exclamation My seat squeaks and is driving me mad! Help

Recently I noticed that my car's driver seat squeaks as it moves into driving position upon putting the key into the ignition. Can someone please help or have experienced this and resolved it?

1. Locate the squeaky source with
Mechanic's Stethoscope
2. Lubricate/oil/grease/...

Probably one of the bearings. As stated before, find the source and put grease on the track.

I'm hoping to spray the tracks with WD-40, would this suffice?

WD-40 would work to take away the squeak, but it's not a long term lubricant.
After spraying it with WD-40, use white lithium grease or the like to keep it working smoothly.
