I don't know if this helps, but I had a squeek/rattle that sounded like it was under or inside the dash. I finally laid under the truck and pushed up and down on the body and isolated the noise to the shift linkage for the transmission. There are several pivot points that appear to have plastic bushings in them, that would squeek as the body moved. I soaked them down with ATV chain lube (all I had at the time) and no more noise! I was ready to set it on fire before I found it!

I never cared for the silicone embeded plastic bushings, like all those Mercedes cars use, not a single zirc fitting to be found, after a while those cars are the squeakiest damn things on the road. anyways grease em up good when you get the chance
