  1. Just the other day I started to notice a vibration/rattle noise coming from the front passenger side around 70mph. It almost sounds like the windshield, or what you would expect something rattling against glass to sound like. I can’t pinpoint where it’s coming from, but’s somewhere within the vicinity of the passenger side dash/windshield/headliner area. Sounds more like it’s around the headliner area. It it mostly only seems to happen at higher speeds (70+mph) although today I did just today hear it at 60mph for the first time. My guess is maybe the the windshield is leaking some air since it happens at higher speeds??? Because going over bumps doesn’t seem to have any negative or positive impact on the noise. Anyone else have any issue like this, or any guess as to what it might be?
  2. 2017 sierra A/T crew cab I have the most annoying tick noise over bumps, coming from the b pillar behind my left ear and it is driving me brick house, I've pulled at the trim off put my hands on everything made sure everything is tight, stuff rags in between contact points, I've run out of ideas, anyone have an guidance for me, I'm a ex gm technician of 5 years , I know what I'm doing but of course my own truck baffles me..per usual any new bulletins or tsbs?
  3. Anyone have a rattle behind the drivers seat? It’s either in the rear door or the pillar between the 2 doors.
  4. Just an FYI for an issue I just resolved with my 2 week old 2017 Silverado. Drove off the lot and put on some music that had some mid-range bass and my passenger door speaker was causing a rattle that I wasn't sure if it was the door rattling or a blown speaker but either way it was horrible and needed attention by the dealer. Dropped it off and they pulled the interior panel and added sound proofing tape and wrapped the area they believed was causing the problem. Was in and out in a couple of hours and was covered in full by warranty. Cranking some old hip-hop without any rattle and I'm a happy camper. Dealer said this has been an issue for years and I was able to find a similar thread on a 2014 here... Easy fix...
  5. Alright- high Miller here- 445 KM, (276000 miles) tranny rebuilt at 350. in the past month, I have noticed a rattle. Not steady, inconsistent, It is not- piston slap- present when engine is warm lifter- inconsistent lifter gone- zero power loss, truck runs great, drives great, no loss uphill. highly doubtful cat converter. Possibly AC clutch? Bearing in that area? It sounds like it’s coming from that area. Truck straight on, bottom left. I cant test because of GMs safety feature with the outside temp gauge on AC and stopping it (3 blinks) (Canadian winter) Has had anyone just cut this belt and said eff the AC? I have zero use for AC, summer I roll the windows down, I think it’s a waste of gas to be honest. Been through pretty much everything else. More of a nuisance then an issue. Truck drives great, no lights, nothing. Mileage dropped a bit, but could be Canadian winter. Im tempted to cut the belt, as it appears it’s got its own belt and from diagrams that’s what I can see. Thoughts? Tia
  6. My 2018 Sierra SLT Crew Cab has an annoying buzzing sound, rattle, or vibration when in motion that come from the headliner, overhead console area. When I lightly press up the headliner or plastic molding in this area the noise stops. I only hear it when no radio is on but annoying on a year old truck GMC. It is not the eye glass holder that I can tell. Any ideas? Do you think the warranty should cover silencing this vibration?
  7. Hello all! First post here! What brought me here was the 8l90 torque converter lockup shudder issue. Most times I'd just take this truck to the dealer and let them sort it out, but as it's out of warranty, this is not something I'd like to pay >$600 to repair (this price was quoted to me for the flush and filter change). After talking to a few service advisors I've found that each of them planned on using a different solution to attempt to alleviate the shudder. The first was going to proceed via one of the bulletins and do a triple fluid swap and filter change, the others were just going to do a standard flush and fluid swap. I plan on owning this vehicle for another few months until the 19's become a little more negotiable but cannot stand to let this shudder go on that long and am a bit worried about destroying the torque converter in the process and washing a whole bunch of parts down into the transmission. So.... my question is if anyone has performed this fluid swap themselves, if it alleviated the issue, and if the filter change is necessary? I saw that many of the Corvette guys were swapping to the Mobil 1 fluid with some success, however, I didn't think this was as much of a fluid performance issue as it was a suspended clutch material / dirty fluid issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!
  8. I have a 2014 4.3 2 wheel drive Silverado and I have a noise coming from somewhere on the truck. I can’t figure out if it’s the engine, the transmission or the rear end. It only happens under light acceleration between 30-60 mph. I loose power when it happens too. I took it to the dealer and ofcourse they couldn’t replicate the sound. But it sounds like Chewbacca. Anybody know what this is?
  9. I have a 2017 GMC 2500HD, every time I hit a small bump, I here a rattle in the steering column area. It only happens on small bumps, has anyone come across this? Did you find the problem?
  10. I have a 2008 GMC Sierra with the 5.3 liter engine. I hear a rattle coming from the underneath of the truck only at 1000-1500 RPM’s. I checked for loose clips and stuff but I have found nothing. It doenst affect the way the truck runs just the sound. Also, the temperature doesn’t affect the rattle.
  11. Many people have upgraded the bass in their newer model Chevs/GMC/Caddys and have found that with that comes some new vibrations and rattles associated. Below is a run down how to solve one of those problem areas which is the homelink buttons. Problem: Homelink buttons rattle/buzz/vibrate with bass of stereo Vehicles application: Any with homelink buttons (example vehicle shown is a 2018 Suburban) Test: Turn it up (to 11 if you have to) and listen to your homelink buttons, or if you just lightly touch on them and you feel them very loose and not sturdy, odds are that is a source of one of your new rattles. Solution: Electrical tape and some minor disassembly of the overhead console and homelink buttons. Process: Step 1: Test it to see if you have the issue. I added a 10" sub in the back that now vibrated the homelink buttons on certain frequencies, very annoying. It also did the window switch buttons but that is a different fix although very similar. Tap on the buttons lightly, if they are wobbly and loose then you probably do or will have this problem, or turn the volume up with your favorite bass track and listen to the buttons vibrate. Example Image of this part on 2018: Step 2 (VIDEO): Disassemble the control unit. Here is a great little video on a 2015 Tahoe that is identical procedure to get the panel out that holds the homelink. Video Link: Overhead homelink removal Remember you will need to disconnect plugs before the cover panel will actually come out and DO NOT just pull down hard on the entire overhead console center. There are two screws (phillips on the 2018) retaining the full overhead piece in. Just open the sunglasses holder if you have it and we only need to take down the middle cover plate to perform this fix. Step 3: With the piece out on a workbench you can now disassemble the homelink buttons using a torx bit screw driver. It is very small and there are two screws holding the homelink into the cover/trim plate. Step 4: Is to take any decent vinyl electric tape/felt tape/flocking tape and add it to the trim plate like the below. You can trim the excess if you want to. The goal is to make sure you cover the bulk of the perimeter where the buttons themselves will rest against the cover/trim plate. The addition of two layers of Vinyl electric tape cured the problem I was experiencing. This additional thickness added pressure to the buttons mount tab itself which created a more snug and tight fit, that also made the buttons more rigid in the mount. Step 4: Reassemble the homelink to the cover plate, and then put everything back together in reverse order and you should now be vibration noise free at the home link button spot on your overhead console. Make sure to reconnect all plugs and test function before final pressing of the control plate back into the overhead console. Any questions let me know. I only had electrical tape to perform this task. I have some felt tape and flocking tape on order to do more vibration and rattle killing with the addition of the sub. Below is the two versions of tape I ordered that I will also have on hand other than black vinyl electric tape on this quest for vibration and rattle free music listening. J.V. Converting FLOCK-1/BLK05833 JVCC FLOCK-1 Flocking Tape: 1/2" x 25 ft., black J.V. Converting FELT-06/BLK15 JVCC FELT-06 Polyester Felt Tape: 1" x 15 ft., black
  12. I am looking at tackling the infamous steering rattle in my 2011 2500HD. I plan on replacing both the intermediate shaft and the steering column bearing. I have located the shaft online, but am not sure if the column bearing Part # 905-512 will fit my truck. Everything online says no. Any recommendations? Thanks, Mike
  13. So my 17 LTZ decided to develop a rather annoying rattle under the driver side dash. Looks like I will have to pay my local dealer a visit sooner than expected. Should I prepare myself for any other squeaks or rattles in the near future??
  14. 2007.5 nbs SiveradoI LTZ 6.0L I've been reading the forums up-and-down and can't find anybody with similar problems. kinda. My truck starts no problem, it idles nice and smooth. With no noises. And when running in V8 mode I hear no noise 1st 2nd and 3rd. Power is normal. The knocking / rattle happens when I let off the gas and the truck enters V4 for mode. I can hear a click when it does this. Then when under very slight acceleration while still in V4 Mode I start hearing a very loud knocking / rattle under the glovebox area. If I keep the truck in this position and staying in V4 Mode the noise will continue forever until I give it a little more gas and it switches to V8 mode. There is no vibration at all, and no codes are thrown. The sound seems to be rotational and related to speed and or RPM and it gets louder the closer I get to switching to V8 mode. I have checked the flex plate, it is fine Any help at all would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  15. I had two major rattles on my 2014 LTZ. The first was the sunglasses holder which is another thread. The second I thought was either the dash or under the steering column. I zip tied my hood release cable which put to rest a very minor rattle, but there was another obnoxious "tick tick" type noise that became a vibration noise for me when going over bumpy roads and sometimes on the interstate when hitting a pot hole. I searched under the steering column shaking everything in sight until I found this object linked to the gear shifter. It is riveted and has lots of play. I zip tied it so it's just snug and what do you know. My truck is back to being a very quiet Silverado. Please check yours I'm willing to bet it's loose.
  16. Ok, so after getting my truck fixed after it got hit when I was in restaurant...a couple new things have popped up. Hope I can get a explanation... 1). Transmission started acting up. I notice it the most when I come to a stop, turn off the truck, and suddenly the truck "jumps". Anyone else get that? 2). A mean rattle in the passenger side door. Any bump or audio coming through the speaking make it rattle. Drives me nuts. 3). Last but not least, a leak in my roof. Had a lot of rain late last week out here and after working in the rain for a few hours, I got into my brand new truck and saw a drip in the corner of my eye. I look up and see that there is water holding near the sunglass holder in the headliner. WHAAAAAAAT?
  17. My 07 Z71 has a rattle noise that sounds like it is coming from the front. I have searched high and low to find anyone else with this problem and all I could find was everyone saying at low speed, steering shaft or it rattles with any bump. The noise I am hearing sounds like a washer spinning on a shaft. It only does it around 65-73 MPH. The only thing I have done to it is replaced the passenger side cv axle about a year ago when it broke. This was before the noise started. I replaced it on the drivers side about three weeks ago due to the noise and it popping in 4wheel. It fixed the popping of course but not the rattle noise. I checked everything I could think to check but have had no luck. The one thing I am leaning towards more than anything is I grabbed the axle where it is bolted to the flange that goes into the differential and tried to turn forward and reverse to check for play I noticed it move up and down a little where it goes in the differential just a bit. It wasn't much but was noticeable. I am just curious as to where I need to start looking, what to look at and has anybody had this issue. I'm at a loss right now.
