I recorded some video while on the tower today and was  wondering if 
anyone could tell me if the noise is normal wear and tear or  if it's on 
the verge of failure? The rotor is only few years  old.

        When does it CREAK? Just  sitting there in the wind? Moving? All 
the time? One direction and not the  other? 
        Creaking while the wind  blows doesn't indicate any problem as far 
as I'm concerned- just a typical  working tower noise. If it works normally 
other than that, I'd ignore it.
