Question LH dash vent noise

Has anyone found a solution for a creaking noise from the air vent at the left end of the dash? Seems to be the right side of the unit rubbing on the opening in the dash, somewhere inside. I've stuffed material in between and used silicone spray but the noise always comes back. A while back, 'wheelchair' mentioned that a new vent was ordered but the thread ended there. Did this solve it? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for that but deffo the vent as the noise stops if I put some pressure on it. I could get a new vent fitted but it might start a string of events like has occurred in the past.
