Spider 916 creaking dash problem solved !

Hello everyone !

I recently purchased a series 2 Spider 2.0 TS few weeks back.

thanks to this forum I have solved a creaking dashboard problem that occured when the steering wheel has up or down pressure applied to it, side to side made no noise.

the problem was solved by squirting silcon spray into the small recess by the windscreen when you pop the plastic cover you see two 10mm bolts. Impossible for me to check for tightness, but the silicon spray worked like magic ! Now no more creaking dash.

kind regards

I have a similar problem too. But mine is the centre console. I was reading on the workshop manual that it should reinstalled by applying Vaseline to the surfaces that contact other plastics or vinyl.
Might have to do this in other places too, back seats, front seats and doors. Its driving me up the wall

Like the bash the mole game in a fairground, you sort one squeak out and another magically appears soon afterwards.

Its a design feature....!
