Ok ive had the car for over a year now, this creaking around the
ashtray/gear stick area is driving me crazy, i can allmost stop it by
grabing hold of the plastics around the ashtray area when im driving
.... this is not a good solution though lol.

It seems like its creaking from where the centre surround (gearstick area) joins the main dash but im unsure.

Common problem?, does anyone have the solution?

Thanks for the vortex step by step guide, should save me snapping my full dash in half.

just to jump on the band wagon,

i ordered some anti rattle/squeak tape of flea bay, i got a rattle behind the dash. taking a rough guess the noise sounds like its coming from behind the vents.

anyone had this before?

[off-topic] The centre console is one thing - how do you stop the handbrake button from rattling without buying any new parts? [:mad:]
