    Afternoon folks, well I've had my bug for 3 years bnow, its a 2003 tdi cabriolet. Recently its started making a creaking noise from the dashboard area. Having stripped off the top speaker cover sections and the sliding centre section its still making the noise - I think its coming from the area near the middle of the screen where there are demister vents.

    Has anyone come across this problem before and if so what was the fix.

    Many thanks for your help.
    John

    I wonder whats happened to this forum, at one time it was really busy and helpful - whats happened to all the regular contributers?

    Anyway for anyone in a similar situation, it turned out it wasnt the dash after all it was where the roof comes into contact with the screen suround which was creaking - a good dowsing around the catches and along the rubber seal with silicone lubricant spray has sorted it out. Now I just need to replace the dash assembly.
