I'm not sure what the noise is up front.  Sounds like it's coming somewhere from the dash area when it's REALLY cold.

for the a pillar i have tsb #12-113-09 posted 08/03/09. For the rear cargo tsb#09-49-07 posted 09/07/07. Couple things worth noting, i work as a technician for toyota so i pulled these off of all data pro meaning if someone has access to subarus info system they may have updated/more descriptive bulletins. also you have to use thicker foam in more places than the tsb says for the a pillar, ill pull mine out tomorrow and write my DIY for it took me a few tries to have the noise fully gone but i did figure it out  ^_^

Still waiting. ;)

I'm either going to take it to the dealer, while I'm still under 36k.. or just DIY.

Mine was fixed (so far) by Beardmore under warranty.  :subaru:

It is listed as follows (their spellings):

"Customer states the a pillers make a squeak noise while driving till the int, is warmed up. Found pillars squeeking against dash. Removed and and lubed pillers road tested and no found no more noise. A913-171 FC=YCJ-03"
