Default Chirping in the dash

1989 4x4 2.9 auto. Seems like overnight I developed a chirping noise in the dash near the instrument cluster. I have been under the dash w/o any success trying to locate this noise. I am very anal about noise. I know this is an old truck but all is tight except this new noise in the dash. I need advise on how to fix this matter. How do I remove the dash panel to access the area where the noise is? This chirp only occurs when I put the trans in gear forward and reverse and on bumps on the road. This is really pushing my OCD buttons someone help if you can thanks.

It would actually be a pain in the butt to remove the whole dash

I would start removing things that are easy to remove and seeing if anything is lose

Okay walk me through the easy things to remove. I don't know where to start. And I do not want to remove the whole dash,just the cluster area. thanks

I hope that something didn't accidently get dropped down a vent like a coin or something causing the rattle. That would be a real pain for something so small.
