Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

Hello All,

So I have searched the forums and tried some methods from others regarding a squeak in the dash area near the drivers side.

it's not a rattle or clunk, it is a squeak sound. It happens over bumps and sometimes is worse in the morning oddly enough. if i do sharp turns sometimes it does it squeak.

Yesterday i pulled the driver side pillar off and seemed like nothing I touched would make that squeak. Reinstalled and sound went away for a day. It's back again and I thought let me try removing the plastic pillar again. Still sound remains.

I do have warranty still but I know the dealer will just bark at the idea of dash squeak and think i am just being to anal about noises.

Any one else have a squeak sound coming from the drivers side dash area. I have tried holding the cluster over bumps and the dash part which covers the centre speaker and the sound still happens,

Thanks in Advance,

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

After some additional experimenting it has to be coming from the pillar

Any recommendations? I think it's the clips on the plastic cover rubbing against the bare metal when it's inserted.

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

Still can't find the squeak, even with that piece off it continued. Definitely coming from that corner. It's the worst in the mornings for some reason.

I uploaded a video.

I watched the video and I feel for you. It would drive me nuts too. Have you tried taking it to a dealer for this?

Sure....

...just not on a nearly new vehicle. I heard it on my last truck on rough roads, but only because it was 16 years old.

That's what warranties are for. Take it back to the dealer and don't let them tell you they can't fix it.

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

We had that squeak and it seemed to come from the A-pillar or the dash - very difficult to pinpoint but the husband did find the cause. (on ours). It was the rain-runoff pipe that runs from the windowscreen down the right of the engine compartment. It had popped out from its connection. Might be worth checking that.

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

Nice that you have the video as proof.


I hate when you tell the dealer about a problem & afterwards you get told that they "could not replicate" as if the problem was in your head.

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

Brought it to the dealer. They claimed they fixed it. I told them it's strange it won't always do it and is more pronounced in the mornings.

Issue still happening I will continue to bug them about it once my other warranty part arrives.

Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

I have this same squeak on my 2013 Overland. Where is a diagram of where the rain-pipe runoff is located?
