Dash Squeak Fix!
I have been chasing a squeak behind the dash for weeks. It has sounded like I have a nest of baby birds just behind the radio. I removed the radio and drove around till the squeak started so I could reach in the dash and stop the squeak with my hand. What I found was the air duct for the defrost that is molded to fit along the fire wall was rubbing the fire wall. I shoved larges pieces of rubber between the two and some foam and now NO SQUEAK! I hope this helps anybody that is searching.
I've been dealing with the same thing, finally fixed it today. Underneath the long plastic pannel that covers the vents along the inside of the windshield (you can remove it by prying it off) there are two m6 nuts on either side of the steering wheel that hold the driver's side of the dash in place. The one on the right side was totally missing (I have no idea why) but I replaced it, with a washer too, and NO MORE SQUEAK! AND no more jiggly dash either, didn't realize how bad it was until it stopped.

Ok guys, straight up. I have a 2000 TJ sahara, 4.0L. I've been chasing a squeak that I thought was angry sparrows. Also thought it was this nut or the firewall vent. My friend found the problem. It was the shifter for the 4WD. It wasn't pushed down all the way. That produces a fairly annoying squeak!
Thank you montanamule!
