So it's been a long process to figure out where this is coming from...

Once my TJ warms up, I get a nasty squeak in my dash - sounded like it was behind the AC vents. It happens when I hit bumps, heavy or light, sometimes squeaks when idling, or when coming off a stoplight...

Finally discovered that it APPEARS it is just above the passenger floorboard (under the glove box), where the drain tube for the HVAC goes through the firewall.

It also appears that that is not an assembly that's bolted in there, it's just fitted. Is that true?

I had that repaired shortly after buying it (last fall) because it was soaking the carpet. Anybody think I can dampen this myself, or is it better to take it back to the dealer?

My concern with the dealer is, if he can't duplicate the problem, he'll call it fixed...

It appears that the tube is cushioned with a piece of foam - but I can't tell if that foam is like a washer - between the flange of the tube and the wall of the Jeep, or if it WRAPS the tube as it goes through the firewall.

Anybody have any clues/advice?

Anybody even understand what I'm talking about?

My squeak turned out to be the passenger handle was used a little too much and my passengers managed to loosen it up some. Might want to try just tightening the bolts right up inside the opening to to glove box.
