Default Winter Ghosts Appearing Inside!

So anyone that lives in a northern state probably knows what kind of things creep up on or in your car in the winter. One thing I am starting to notice about this bonneville which I bought in august, is that when it it very cold, and you turn the hear on inside, plastic pops and creaks seem to be everywhere until it gets really hot all over inside and you hit some rough pavement to get it all broken in. Argh I hate that!

Feel free to share your winter ghost stories about your car lol

My right strut bearing starts to act up when the weather cools down.

Don't know if it'* something critical or if I can milk it for awhile.

hah, I don't really have this problem...

the only noise problem I have is that I twisted the left front strut piston too many times and messed up the pluger/grommet deal on the end of it....so it kinda sounds like...well its hard to explain.. but it sounds wierd...at first it got me thinking it was something else but now I know nothing is wrong and its just a strut.

Really don't have any plastic heating problems...my car has only one squeak/rattle on the drivers side and annoys the #&^%$# outta me.

My windshield makes a creaking noise when the car is cold in the morning.

The only rattles I ever get is where my front pass. door panel is broken at the top, and I can only hear it on my driveway with the radio all the way down.

Every time I start the car, makes a very long farting noise coming from the glovebox.

Apparently thats the ECC doing its test, I made the mistake of unplugging the battery 2 weeks back and now its doing its damn diagnostic test.
