When I'm holding the console with anything more than a light grip, I'm noticing the right side of the bottom cover plate gets compressed and makes a nasty squeaking noise. I'm not talking about moving very slightly, it can be pressed in quite a bit.

I'm probably just going to pad it on the inside with some paper or something (hopefully the battery doesn't get that too hot), but I'm wondering if this is a common issue?

Only bothered to test it with the Boo and Pikachu plates so far, but same problem on both.

It was a common issue with the old 3DS XL. I had this problem with all 3 of my old 3DS XL.
Nintendo seems to have reinforced the backplate for the new 3DS XL, but you
just have gotten a bad one.

Try open up the backplate and put it back on. If it still squeaks, get a replacement backplate.
