Warm Day = Creaking Dash Noises?
 
So I had to run a few errands in sunny San Diego, CA and noticed that there was some creaking coming from my dash near the nav screen. Sounded like when plastic expands.

Im thinking its from the car sitting in the sun for several hours. Anyone else have a noisy dash?

Occasionally I hear the same types of things. i don't really sweat it. I haven't seen any issues.

resurrecting this thread to see if anyone else has this issue. I have a bad squeak in my dash/steering column area. My dealer has tried to fix it twice and now believes there is a TSB for a faulty steering half shaft. The new part arrives in a couple of weeks.

anyone else have this experience?

My JGCO sat in full sun all day Saturday at temps over 105 in the shade and had no squeaks at all when I got back in it. Do you use a windshield shade? I do, but don't know if that makes any difference.

If the squeak is combined with a vibration, its possibly AC related. Coming to a conclusion on a fix for mine soon.

It could be. I'm in Arizona so the AC is pretty much constantly on this time of year.

I have the same problem with my 11 GC Summit. I'm due for an oil change soon so I'm going to see if they can fix it then.

My dealer just replaced the intermediate steering shaft and so far it appears to be resolved.
