    I'm getting a creak on both the drivers and passengers side doors when I press my elbows on the door armrest. It's kind of a creak or squeak and sounds like a fastener rubbing against metal. When Tesla service replaced the door latch on the drivers side, they installed some foam tape to try to limit movement, but still present. Anyone one else have this issue and find a good resolution? Thanks.

    I started noticing this after the last service center visit. Plan to put it on the list for the next visit.

    Had it, too, after a latch replacement. It's an easy fix at the Tesla service center - they said it was a clip that was missing.

    Same here, after latch replacement. SC fixed it up. Sounds like they need to add a step to the replacement instructions.
