I know the general consensus of the forum is to take the car to the dealer for every creak and squeak, but it's gonna get old tracking them all down. Ask your service writer for a "quiet kit" or bits from one...if Ford even does this. Toyota has a kit...a box full of foam, felt, rubber bits, seals, etc., that are used to quiet things like dash rattles that happen on really cold days and buzzing plastic vibrations. Despite each car being "identical" each part isn't exactly the same. If you can get some of this stuff and a friend to drive with you to push in and pinpoint the rattles and squeaks, you can fix most of them faster on your own.
