RSGTS - myself and a few others with 997.2's have had some squeaks with the interior. Mine was in the instrument cluster area. They are hard to isolate as I originally thought it was the chrono dial on top of the dash.

Here's what I did to isolate it and fix it. Maybe it will help you but be careful as it involves isolating the squeak sound while driving.

While the car is squeaking stick your fingers into the gap area between the dash and the dials. You may have to test a few spots to find the main source or sources of the squeak. You may also have to push fairly hard so you make enough separation between the dash and the dials. If this is the source of your squeaks, it will eventually stop as you find the correct spot. Once identified, I used some soft black rubber weatherstripping strips (the thin kind with peal off sticky tape on the back) and pushed them well back - hidden from view - so they cushioned the dash and the dial(s). Road tested it again and no squeaks. Been quiet for the last 2 years with this method. Good luck.

The only squeak I have is driver door, dealer told me it is normal on convertibles - I still dont think that's a reasonable answer.
