Got my Crosstrek 2018 last year in August, there is a squeaking noise coming from somewhere front passenger side.People getting in the first time in me heard it, they thought was coming from gloves compartment. Went to dealer several times, kept it for a week each time... they still have not found where is coming from... they drove with me , heard it, changed completely the glove compartment, put some foam, took the speaker off, did something with, not sure what, noise still there. Noise is really annoying, they say is plastic noise, for me sounds like something vibrates...

Took notes every time I hear it, is random... weather cold or not, can pass several days without hearing it, then back again... mostly at low speed (never on highway) and when road bumpy.

Dealer gave up... I am really annoyed by it, car is new, I understand is not easy to find what causes it, but cannot believe that nobody is able to find it... have to put radio really loud not to hear it.

Dealer said they have not heard of anyone having this issue. I am losing my patience ☺. Don't know what to do anymore...

Small suggestion to narrow things a bit. My glove box area made a foam ice chest sound a bit which drove me bonkers. One thing you can do do isolate it is go to a road where it will do it consistently. Then when you've duplicated it, drive the same stretch of road with the glove box open. I discovered mine by accident. I can talk you through where I applied some materials to shut it up.

Thanks for your tip. They did it... I drove while the tech opened it, took it off completely... they put foam, replace the part that keep it in place, replaced the glove compartment and noise still there.. they replaced the speaker too and something else close to speaker, no change... it drives me nuts.. loud and extremely annoying.. and the car is new ?
