Okay, so I got the G back today as promised, and the creaking is gone. Below I have typed in most of my work order. The work order ID (in case any of you would like to reference it is 01907
Keep in mind, however, that if your G is creaking, this invoice should not be used to force the dealer to replace the compression rods. Instead, use this to give them some help as to finding the real problem.
