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.
Mike

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?

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!
