Squeaky dash - S70

    Does anyone have advice on making my dashboard less squeaky? Someone
    suggested that I need to tighten some screws. So, I read instructions on
    Swedespeed for removing the dash of a 850, but my S70 seems a bit
    different. The 850 had a vent assembly that you could move up and down,
    but my S70 just has a stationary assembly, and the vents inside move up
    and down.

    Thanks.

    The first screws to look at are under the hood, under the black plastic
    cover that surrounds the wiper arm pivots. There are 4 going through
    the firewall evenly spaced across the car.

    I have a s-70 that has a squeaky dash, it quits when the heater has
    warmed the interior.

    On passenger side only.

    Any ideas?

  4. Found a noticeable difference after mounting an aftermarket front strut
    tower brace.
    The improved torsional rigidity made the dashboard less squeaky.

    The squeaks seem to come not long after I replaced the engine mount
    bushings. I think I'm done with aftermarket parts for now. My Bilsteins
    are riding a bit rough for me.

    I used on of those "rubber feet" that are used as non slip points or non
    mark points on items that need to stay still. This took up the slack of the
    glovebox and squeaks went away!
