Loose oil cooler

I have a squeak in the front and it doesn't seem to be the usual. Found that the oil cooler is loose, anyone else have this issue and know how long it takes the dealer to fix? Still under warranty thankfully.

front squeaks have usually been attributed to shock

Yep and that's what I thought is was but I couldn't replicate the squeak by "bouncing" the front. The squeak also seemed to go away at speed, I think the air pressure on the cooler stopped it from moving so no squeak.

I wonder how many people are running out to check their oil cooler mounts?
(Mine are fine)
