    not sure how to explain. but it just started recently. every time i turn the to right theres a faint crackling/squeaking noise coming from the dash.

    i dont know where but it sounds like plastic.

    anyone have this problem?

    Sure its not your airbox rattling against the fender? Go under the hood and grab your air intake hose and shake it hard... see if that kinda sounds like your noise. When the engine is under torque, it shifts a bit, and when you hit a bump, it will agitate it a bit.

    No im pretty sure it's not my airbox since I have no air box lol I have a gay & N cold air that came on the truck when I got it. I think it may be my catalytic converter possibly. That's right under the passanger floor board where the noise seems to come from

    Look at the driver side dash where the opening for the defroster is. I found a crack on my 2012 with only 34k miles.
