Annoying squeak from dash

When going over bumps there is a very high-pitched annoying squeak coming from my dash. If I push forward lightly on the dash above the speedo when going over bumps the noise goes away.

Any ideas how to fix this aside from pushing on the dash each time I go over rough roads?

I found 303 Protectant and some other vinyl/plastic protectants can work. Undo the screws at the top, and pry down just enough to get a swab soaked with the stuff in between the edge and the frame. Don't get the swab too wet or it'll run down inside on the glass.

That did it for me before.
