Creaking noise diagnosis

I'm trying to diagnosis a creaking noise coming from my '13 ST. It sounds like its coming from the left front of the car. It seems to happen only on a cold start, I'll take my foot off the clutch and give it some gas and I'll hear the slight creak or chirp as the car starts moving.

I thought maybe a strut just based off where the sound is coming from, but I cant see that actually happening. I did have a problem with my 2012 SEL focus where vibrations caused a similar creaky noise to come from rubber hoses and plastic parts under the hood to rub.

I know its doubtful to get a proper diagnosis on a forum, I'm just trying to get some ideas to pitch to the dealership when I bring it in.

Hi Burns098356GX,

I would like to assist! Please PM me your VIN, odometer reading, full name, telephone number and dealer info; I will look into the available resources. In the meantime, I suggest taking the vehicle to your dealer for diagnosis.
