I’m at 3000 miles and I noticed that it comes from the long trim piece around the tail light on the roof that goes all the way across from door to door . I have the 2019 Chevy custom. And it happens when it’s been out in the heat and when I make sharp turns or over a bumpy road. Not so much in the morning when it’s cool l. It  only happened a little at first but has gotten worse. Almost like the plastic clips underneath the trim strip are flexing. If you push down on it. You can re-create the sound.  Mine is a double cab

I thought I was crazy, but I have the same thing happening to me on my Custom Trail Boss. Sounds like a large bird poop hitting the roof lol. Definitely towards the rear like mentioned here.

Hadn't seen if anyone with a double cab had posted yet but mine does a little pop now and then too so I figured I'd mention it's not limited to the CC. Doesn't bother me though. In my wife's 2016 RAV4 we traded a few months ago, you could literally hear the whole unibody creaking and popping when going over un-even pavement or dips. It seriously sounded like every joint and weld was gonna break loose lol.

Never had that on my double cab, even on really hot days in the Sun. But when waxing the top, that roof metal is mighty thin and can easily be popped in if too much pressure is applied.....situation would be worse with the larger surface area of a crew cab. Might have something to do with the fact that many of the formerly steel panels have been replaced with aluminum.....maybe working like the biometal strip in a thermostat and dissimilar expansion rates under heat cause a creep or pop.

I've got a sunroof and I DO have the same popping.  I kept thinking an acorn or something dropping out of trees hit it, but then its happened several times with no trees around.  I can live with it, but I sure would like to know what it is.  The noise behind the back seat drives me crazy.

2019 rst cc no sunroof. Popping noise and I too have heard the noise when washing. Seems to be coming from the spoiler. Randomly hear it while driving as well.

Anyone getting a popping noise from their roof?  Every morning when I pull out of my garage and go over a slightly angled transition between my driveway and the street I get a popping from the roof.  I've heard it several other times when driving at low speed as well.  It sounds like the sheet metal is flexing, like if you were to slightly indent a piece of sheet metal, it slightly indents and then you push it in another spot and it pops out of that indent.  I have gotten a very similar noise from the lid on my washing machine.  I do not have a sunroof.

Yes, was figuring it just needs a break-in period.  Doesn't bother me that much...

I have the same sound on my 2019 trail boss LT with a sunroof. It happens about 3 times every time I drive it. Please let me know if anyone has a fix to this. The truck has 300 miles and it’s driving me crazy.

Same pop here, crew cab SLT and sunroof. I agree with the others, thinking it is just expansion from temperature changes. Going to ignore for now since I don't want my headliner removed.

Trail Boss LT with 1300 miles and have the roof popping. It's been there since day 1 and drives me crazy. Really hope they step up and find a solution for this.

Has anyone had the dealer see if they can fix this issue?  My AT4 is at the dealer right now for the pop.

I have only heard the popping sound while washing my truck not while driving. When I spray water on the roof I do sometimes hear a loud "popping" noise.

 

Same here...noticed the same thing the other day it the touchless car wash. Coincidentally on my way to the dealer for an unrelated item. Dealer says it’s likely roof sheet metal flexing. Going to see if it happens more frequently.
