: Noise from fuel door lock mechanism

Hey! Can a fellow X3 owner confirm whether or not their fuel door lock mechanism seems to make an odd noise upon locking the doors? Mine only seems to do it on lock, and not unlock.

It is hard to explain the noise, but it is sort of a long creak - sort of an errrrrrrr. It lasts about 2 seconds. Sounds as if something needs to be lubed. The noise is most noticeable in a quiet garage.
