Dash creaks & rattles

The first long drive has brought out a 'chorus' of new cabin noises. Most are like 'creaks' that seem to be from lower dash (both sides) and the instrument binnacle.
All that plastic/vinyl rubbing against each other may be a 70's fetishists wet dream, but its turning me off

Various mechanics have had dash parts off and so i suspect basic fit and mounting isn't great.

1) Do any of the manuals depict how the dash parts should be mounted?

2) Does anyone know of a lubricant product that could be applied between these 'rubbing' surfaces to keep them silent?

3) The Instrument/gauge binnacle seems to move forward during driving! How is this supposed to be kept in place?
