You have to figure out why its squeaking.. Is the panel loose? Is it the chair rubbing? Maybe its the counter top? Have to look, listen and hold..

It is inside the panel, in the lower mid section. Can those panels be taken apart or anything?

I have found the answer to be 'not really'. If you do happen to find some screws, I think you'll find that they are really flimsy. You'll prolly need to find a way to just brace or reinforce it.

CRC Heavy Duty Silicone Spray from Walmart works wonders for "squeaks" and rattles.

When I had a squeak in the dash the dealer used talcum powder.

You should be able to isolate where it is squeaking by moving your ear around the part while underway. Holding a small rubber hose up to your ear and then moving the other end around the joints might also help isolate the source - sort of like a stethoscope.

Spraying stuff can cause staining, just beware of that.

Another option to "lubricate" the squeak source is cut strips of a place-mat and insert them at the joint and re-tighten. I am talking about those opaque, typically white "slippery" feeling place-mats you can find at WalMart for a couple dollars. They usually have several displays of place-mats scattered about so keep looking. Once you feel the ones I am talking about it'll be obvious, they do feel sort of slippery. These make excellent lubrication shims for anything squeaking like you are talking. And, they will not stain!

I would not spray anything that might stain in the joint. There should be some screws that clamp the piece in place. They maybe on the back side.

If is is squeaking, there is most like some movement in the overhead area.
