The black plastic bit at the back (please excuse) creaks. When I close the screen it clicks or creaks about an inch from closing. The 'plastic bit' at the back is loose as it moves when the macbook is closed and I push on it a little.

It is only on one side.

I took the back casing off the mac (how brave of me lol) but couldn't see where the problem was coming from. (I put it back together and continued to breath)

Does anyone recognize these 'symptoms' and know what the problem is?

Machine still under warranty? Sounds like a defective hinge - which Apple will replace under the warranty or Apple care. If the machine is still covered, make an appointment with your local Apple store Genius bar and take it on in.

Regards.
