    So a few days ago I noticed a weird creaking / slight stutter when I opened my MBA lid. I didn't really worry and thought it was from my cover.

    But after really checking what the problem was today, I found out the hinge was loose on the left side of the Mac and saw some scratches under the hinge.

    Is this a common problem ? Anything I can do to fix it ?

    It's still under warranty, so I'd take it to an Apple Store. Perhaps the Genius Bar can tighten it up. I don't think it's a common issue (it was with the pre-2010 models).
