Creaks and loose fender

I think I saw a few posts about this - but can find them...

Washed the car this weekend and again noticed that the front fender seems to be loose and creaks when pushed. Mirrors also seem to make some noise. I wouldn't care except for the noise while driving.

Anyone have this? Got a fix?

Why not just take it to the dealer?

Mine creak too when pushed upon or during washing....not during driving. Not so sure about the mirrors....mine seem to be rock solid.

My dealer fixed my mirrors with some sort of felt tape behind the screws. I have not had any problems with the front fenders.

same here. However, when I asked my dealer during my last visit, my SA said it is due to the front fenders being made from plastic.
