Default Creaky after Gen 1 Fix Advice

After driving the 2014 Jetta after the Gen 1 Fix however I noticed a creaky scraping scratching noise at the front end when going over speed humps.

Also the foil pouch under the middle of the car seems to be a little lower then the rest of the car.

Anyone else notice this in their fixed cars?

dealer says if it isn't related to the Emissions Fix they will charge a diagnostic fee.

Is the plastic skid plate/side skirts removed for the Gen 1 Fix?

belly pan for sure, heat sheilds are also removed for ease of access as well. I think the mk6 jetta (non golf based) is more labor intensive than other platforms.

Good to know about the heat shields as this noise only appeared after the recall was done. Its definitely not the sway bar links as they were done.
