Im having the same exact issues too!. same exach thing.. its sounds like cracking plastic when the dash had been exposed to heat from the sun and I turn the AC on.
I'm going in this weekend at herb chambers lexus in sharon MA for the brake dust issue, and excessive squeaking on the driver side door handle when I open and close the driver side door.I will bring the "cracking/dash poppong sound issue" to their attention.
ill keep you guys posted.

bring it in to the dealership. thats definitely covered under the bumper to bumper warranty. as to the noise in the dash, of course right when i bring it to the dealership, the cracking noise didnt make a sound. so basically, they could not duplicate the cracking noise, so it was labeled as functioning as designed. no repair necessary.

I've experience the cracking noise from the dash. The sound is like a stone when it hits your windshield. My car is a 2009 and of course the service rep claims he's never heard of this issue before. I'll be taking it in for repair ASAP cause that noise is irritating.
Just a quick update, I got a service rep that acknowledges that Lexus has a problem and the issue seems to have been fixed. I'll have to verify once winter is here because I believe the expanding and contracting of the dash plastic is causing the noise.

I too had some major creaking noises coming from the dash, especially in cold (crappy design in my opinion) as the dash shrinks when it's cold and expands when its warmer. I took it in to the dealer and they said it's a common complaint. They covered it under the warranty and added additional insulation to the contact points of the dash. It has gotten better, but it still makes some noise. With warmer weather approaching I don't expect it to be an issue, but I will be taking it in again this winter. I also have experienced the occasional popping noise of the dash and it is very annoying. I guess i'll have to turn up my music for the time being...

Wow, YES!!, I also have heard the cracking sound. Never thought it was anything but i will need to check if i have a separation on my dashboard. Will the dealer fix under warranty? My car is 2008.
