    I have a pre 3 and the back cover has a lot of give and squeaks. the movement is like that of a jam jar lid (just without the clicking and not so extreme) and the case is not held in tight to one side.

    Every time i pick it up i can feel it and its becoming quite annoying.

    Anywhere i can buy replacement Pre 3 Back covers / ideas to make it stop?

    EDIT: after posting this thread i found a squeaky case was a known issue for the original pre's. There have been work arounds including cutting a business card in half and placing it ontop of the battery, i will try this and let you know how i get on.

    EDIT: WOW what a difference, stopped the creaking. Works great!

    Sorry for the unnecessary post, didn't know it would be so easy to fix!

    Thanks still. You saved us the search effort and put both the problem and the solution in one place. If any one of us new Pre3 owners, face this issue, it is going to be handy.

    That is loose slider in your case (mine is the same), I am on it, trying to figure out how to make it better, but it will rather not be a simple fix as the above, at least I can't think about anything very simple in this case, requires some more tinkering inside.
