So dimple the metal and this will fix the body flex? Thanks for the information, but I find it hard to believe a hammer and punch will stop the body from flexing enough to save the windshield from cracking.

I have the "A" pillar creaking and now when I take off from a stop I hear a noise from the dash, but I believe the noise is just the plastic parts flexing with the body.

Hope this fix works for you, let us know if the dealer creates more problems when taking the dash out.

I have just started to hear a popping noise from the passenger front side I thought that it was something in my glove box or in the door cup holder but I took everything out and its still there. I have been passing it off since it has been below 0 the last few weeks. Hope that is all that it is but I'm going to have to have it checked out at the dealership.
