You will more than likely have to remove the dash to isolate the problem, however, removing the dash without proper tools/procedures can accidently deploy an airbag, causing injury.
You could buy a Haynes manual and make sure you have tightend all the bolts/screws.
Sounds like a the plastic supports have failed due to heat or some impact from previous owner.
Call Ford and ask them if there is a TSB on this problem.
