Dashboard creaking noise on Patriot?

Not sure if anyone else has experienced this or found the exact source...

When the vehicle is cold I get a creaking sound coming from the far front of the dashboard, close to the glass. Seems to be where the center bezel ends near the defrost vents, but I can't be sure since I'm driving when it happens and can't reach up there. It happens on almost every bump I hit, and it gets very irritating very quickly. Was considering taking it into the dealer to check it out on warranty, however I'd just as soon fix it myself if anybody else has run across this and has a quick remedy.
