[Biturbos4] Click dash-board driving me nuts!

Over the last few months I've started to notice a SUPER ANNOYING clicking 
in my dash, in the front-left-hand corner.  Every time I go over a bump 
(small or big), I hear a "click".  I wasn't sure what it was at first, but 
when I push down on that part of the dash with my hand, I feel a little 
"give", and I think it's that give which is making the sound.

A friend of mine was in the car with me the other day, and when I told him 
how I was about to go crazy because of the sound, he said that it was 
probably due to the cold and overall size of the dash decreasing 
(minutely), but enough for it to bounce up and down over small bumps.  I 
_have_ noticed that if I crank up the heat or if it's a (rare--I'm in MA) 
warm day, the sound is less noticeable.

1.  Has anyone else noticed this with their S4's?
2.  Does the idea of dash-board shrinkage have any merit?
3.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

I'd really appreciate the feedback.
