Depends on what you have done and exactly how the saddle creaking occurs. Don't know what you mean by grease it, lubed it up - where, with what? Can you recreate the noise by flexing the seat by hand, and if so how - flexing sides, front/rear only, grabbing on to nose and tail, straight down pressure? Sometimes when the problem is internal structure of the saddle the only fix is replacement.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.
Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.
If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.
Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
