creaking dashboard

Hi All

I'm pretty pleased after I lowered my 147 but one consequence is a creaking dashboard because of the harder ride. Any solutions to this? Would a squirt of oil somewhere help?

Re: creaking dashboard

If the creaking seems to be coming from the A-pillars then it is where the light gray internal trim meets the dash. To fix place small plastic wedge to separate slightly or use silicon spray.

Re: creaking dashboard

i found it was the windscreen = remove the plenum covers and spay silcone spray in the rubber the screen sits in, all down a pillars and along the bottom

could also be AR bar bushes, give them a soak seperatly so you can id which it is
