Is the squeaking coming from the seat belt area? Typically this indicates that the seat cushion may be worn, in my experience. This is because the seats are under quite a bit of tension from being held down all along the edges. As the cushion material wears, it allows the seat cover to expand outwards rubbing against the plastic seat hinge covers and seat belt covers.

How many miles on your car?

I have used silicone spray with a snorkle tube and lots of rags to help stop this. You insert the tube at the junction of the plastic seatbealt covers and the seat cushion material, give it a blast, using rags to catch the drips etc.

If per chance the above does not apply, try using a good leather care product and rub all around, especially where the seat back and the seat bottom intersect.
