Dashboard Creaking?

I have a really annoying creaking noise in my 2016 P90DL X.

It sounds like it's coming from under the glove compartment.
I've actually removed the glove compartment and front trim, and the noise still persists.

Anyone have a similar issue or take it into the SC?

mine has the same creek and its from the frameless window. The next time you're driving and you notice it try tapping the window down very slightly, it usually makes the noise go away. The trick is not going too far down where the window whistles. I'm going to either try to have service take care of it next time the X is there or I'll remove the door panel and adjust the height of the window.

FYI, I had a very similar annoying creaking but more from the center of the dash and it was on acceleration and lifting off the accelerator. They had it for a week and oddly enough, the culprit was a worn (right, I think) strut. Ever since not a sound. Would have sworn something was loose under the dash. YRMV. Good luck!
