When I pick up my rMBP from a certain angle or grip the bottom access panel creaks. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes, this is a common fault. There is another huge thread here about it (EDIT: Here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1392262)

Quite a few of us have arranged for a service at a local Apple store. I took mine in and the guy asked what I wanted him to do - I said just take the bottom panel off, put it back on and retighten the screws in order.

It worked and I no longer have a creaking case :) Very happy with the service!
