Default creaking noise upon start-up and shut-off

ok, here's the problem. . .upon starting up the engine and shutting off the engine there is a creaking sound coming from the passenger side of the engine bay. it only occurs when I start or shut off the engine. bad motor mount?? any and all suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.

I'm figuring to just have my subie dealer look at it. its gonna be in the shop anyways this friday for front brake pads, rear pads and rotors. has anyone else worn through their rear rotors yet? I don't autox by the way. thanks guys

Does it continue for a short amount of time after the car is off?

Donno about the cobb but my ganzflow made the exact same sound. Found out it was the tubing around the fender hole had fallen out.

Like I said I don't know if the cobb uses this as well but if it does its a good place to start.

please don't shoot me. . .I went to check out the engine bay to see if I could see what was causing the noise. . .it turns out that the silicon protector that covers the intake around the fender hole had slid out of place. adjusted the silicon protector and no more noise. thanks for the help guys. I feel like such a moron~~

That's what I was about to say. The same thing happens to me. Try cleaning the inner part of the rubber and the exterior of the aluminum pipe to keep it from sliding around again. It slides around because of the dirt in between them.
