Cure for S/V70 (98-00) extreme dash noise?

    A couple of months ago there was a thread on the awful 'bang' that
    comes from the passenger's side part of the dash (near the windshield
    and "A" pillar). Apparently it's been a problem with more than a few
    of the 1998 - 2000 70 series cars.

    The weather is colder, and the 'Pop' or 'Bang' is almost a safety
    hazard (sounds like a firecracker going off).

    Has anybody found a cure?

    My dealer said "we can take the dash apart and look around' -- not my
    cup of tea at $70 per hour!

    Start by looking at the 4 screws that hold the upper dash to the
    firewall. The heads are located under the plastic cowl where the cabin
    filter lives. Obviously, you'll only need to check out the ones on the
    passenger side.
