Anyone got any ideas on how to get rid of the squeeking or something to help reduce it?

I went around and found what causes my squeaks and rattles, and used thin foam tape between the parts to keep them from rattling. So far it's worked perfectly (and you can't see the tape if you take your time). My interior is pretty much rattle/squeak free......just need to get some dynamat now and do the floors and doors to quiet things down a bit.

Have one in the dash of my '03 X, never did find where it was coming from. :frown: Recently I've noticed one in my '07... think it's around the head unit... it comes & goes, so I'm still looking for it. :mad:

dam that sucks. It sounds like mine is squeeking from like the passenger side. Im not sure if its from the door panels or something along that side. I think my SF is just showing its age :(

From the driver seat, I'd swear the noise on the '03 X was on the passenger side of the dash, but when my son was with me, he said it was towards the drivers side! :confused: To make it interesting, the sound isn't always there! :icon_eek:

I passed the '03 X to my son last summer & he hasn't said a thing about the noise, but than, after driving a '95 Neon for years, he's learned to tune out any rattles! :lol:
