What could be the cause of a squeaking noise in my bathtub?

My bathtub makes a rather loud squeaking noise when I get in or lean against the sides.
It started off as a very minor squeak, but now it is rather loud.
I haven't removed the side panels yet. What could be causing this and how can I fix it?

If it is an acrylic or even fiberglass tub they tend to rub when they flex causing squeaking. Pretty tough to do anything with it now if it is finished because all the fasteners are covered up and hidden .
