    Loud thump from front windshield, dashboard.

    Hey everyone.

    Since the cold of this winter, sometimes I heard a loud thump coming from which I think is from the front window/dash board of my Micra. It sounds like it's coming from the center, to the right passenger side. When it warms up it seems to go away. Now that it's cold again, here in Alberta I hear it on bumpy roads. I am not sure what to do since it doesn't come up all the time. I am going to see if I can get it to come up on my dash cam. I just don't want to take to the dealer and have them say, "we can't recreate the noise but we are charging you for the time."

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Now that it's above freezing the noise has gone away. So annoying.

    Honestly, I can't figure it out. Now that it's going to be warm it's not doing it. I'm sure that it will get cold again, I live in Alberta. I will keep the thread open and reply once I get it on my dash cam, if it comes up. I couldn't imagine how much it would cost to rip everything apart to find it when it does come back. I've had noises but not like this and not in the center of the dash.
