Hi. It’s not constant and doesn’t happen everyday, but I’ve noticed an occasional creaking sound behind the steering wheel. I’ve only had the Model 3 for just under two weeks, so it could be the AC passing over/through new plastic. I’ve got the car going in in November for minor paintwork defects, so I’ll bring it up then. But anyone experiencing this?

I had a creak in the driver's door card, service centre clicked it into 2 clips that weren't fully engaged and problem fixed. Could be a similar cause for you.

I got something at >50 mph on drive away from SC, a fast rattle, irregular. Might have been loose plastic on top of steering wheel which I pressed in a bit more - hasn't recurred so far..
