Retorqing the bolts might possible cure the problem, but why run the risk when the warranty covers all contingencies.

It's been my experience to always follow the warranty first, self help second.
On another note, removing the wheels in order to remove the axle cap covering the hub isn't something most of us are equipped to do, .. there is no way I would ever wrestle with one of those rear wheels by myself. Some might, but not me
I do agree some of these things seem simple on the surface, but I am still in awe of the complexity that usually comes with the simple things
