squeaky gerbil behind the dash!

there is a very annoying squeak which seems to be somewhere behind the steering wheel area in the dash board.

I'm about to remove some trim panels to work on a few other bits so is there anywhere in particular that is known to be a squeak hots spot in there?

thanks very much
Ben

Any chance the gerbil squeak is coming from the blower fan?

I don't think its fan related, but will check.
if it is I'll pour some poison through the air vents Smile

Squeaking suggests it is alive. Try tempting it out with a nice treat. Wink

I have the same squeak. Have posted about it before, but no answers. Mine sounds like a dry speedo cable, if it had a speedo cable. Only happens after driving for more than 1/2 hour, and at speed over 40.

I keep threatening to take the lower dash panels off to look for it, but always forget when I get home Rolling Eyes

You may need a ratchet spanner for access:

watching this with interest as I have had a squeek which sounds like its below the steering wheel for about 9 months now. Have had trim off but can't locate it.

it was the steering column!

after prodding, pushing and pulling every piece of trim I could reach I thought I'd have one more go at changing the steering wheel position.
Turns out what I thought was it in max movement was in fact it being stuck. it came free and I adjusted it to suit me better and as a result the gerbil is gone (for now I am sure!)

thank god there is no more squeak - it was driving me a bit nuts!
