My 2012 MBA has been creaking a little from the base. Anyone else have this problem / a fix?

Luck of the draw with the Air's. My 2011 creaked a bit. Tightening the base screws might help. The 2012 I'm sending back doesn't creak at all, yet.

Creaking? Like the sound? Pressing down on it? Not sure what u mean.
