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.
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.
