2019 Crew Cab Rear Door Window Noise

Recommended Posts

Anyone else with a crew cab (or possibly other cab style) notice that while driving at speeds 55mph or higher with the rear door windows all the way down results in an almost deafening whop whop whop like or flapping type of sound that practically hurts your ears?  Would be what I would call a low frequency.  It gets worse the more open the windows are.  My 2016 Sierra Crew did this as well, can't recall if my 2012 LTZ Crew did it or not but I think it did.  Any ideas what is the culprit?  I rarely drive with the rear windows down but when they are, it's maddening and almost makes my ear drums feel like they're going to pop.  Not something I'm worried about more than curious what causes it.

 

Thanks in advance!

Its been the same problem for years. Get used to driving with all down or all up.

 

No longer can you open 1 window to let a fart out without the wife screaming at you to put the window up.

I don’t notice it with front windows much , only rears and CC. The fact that I didn’t notice in previous trucks I had was probably due to the 2012 being my first CC and rear windows went through a period where they only went half way down once they stopped making fold outs on the former extended cabs.

 

Vented seats just blow farts right in my face this time of year. Heated seats make them smell worse so it’s a no win for me on the fart front. I typically just crack the window on her side so it sucks out that direction and she can get the utmost pleasure from it.

 

Thanks for the info - never heard of it before....throbbing is a good description but you couldn’t pay me to use that word around you guys. :D

      I recently installed the upgraded digital dash in our LTZ that did not have it thanks to White Automotive and Media Services.  The process turned out to be quite a bit more daunting than I had expected. I had found a few posts (here and another better start here) that talked about upgrading the gauge cluster, however I could not find any specific step by step instructions to gain access. 
       
      Here's the obligatory "After" photo showing our new gauge cluster!
       

       
      With plenty of reasons for everyone to access the radio, center console, and gauge cluster, I thought a step by step tutorial would make the project immensely easier for anyone willing to do it. And trust me, If I can do it, you can do it. 
       
      This "How To" is a work in progress I just wanted to get it out the before it's fully complete for anyone who wants to do this or has been struggling with how to get the specific trim pieces that are required off. 
       
      I plan to do this entire process again in the near future so I can create a video showing this process and take additional photographs to fill in what I missed the first time. 
       
      LAST UPDATE: Feb 21st, 2020
       

       
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Tools needed
      7mm socket with 6 inch extension & ⅜ ratchet , plastic interior trim removal tools, T15 Torx bit
       
      Plastic Interior Trim Removal Tools are absolutely necessary. Using metal tools or screw drivers will 100% damage your interior!
       
      We used this kit from Amazon that costs around $16.  <------ This is not a referral link. Just being helpful and showing as an example. 

      Prepare by cleaning out center console, cup holders, charging area, side console storage areas, and by moving the front driver/passenger seats backwards. 
      Using towels, create a soft area to store interior pieces during work
       
      The Steps
       
      Pry infotainment decorative chrome/painted trim away, starting at the bottom around the HVAC vents on each side, then the top. 
      Remove square access cover directly next to the accelerator pedal.  Remove the 7mm screw under the decorative cover. 
      Place fingers in drivers side footwell console storage area and use moderate force to pull the side of the center console away.  You do not have the totally remove the panel. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose towards the top and front of the panel.  Do the same on the passenger side, however there is no screw to remove before the panel will snap out. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose. You do not have to totally remove the panel.  With the center console lid open, use a pry tool to pop the clips holding the top of the center console area to the center console assembly.  Pull up and disconnect approximately 10 clips around the cup holders, charging pad and/or storage pad area  and up to directly below the radio/climate controls. Do not yank the trim too far away, there are wires connected to the bottom of this trim piece.  Gently position the tray as far rearward as possible without removing the wires, or gently remove the wire connectors and place the console on your soft area.  Using a pry tool, remove the thin, curved piece of trim directly under the USB/12V/120V Trailer Brake Controls. There are five clips to remove, each releasing directly towards the rear of the vehicle, parallel to the floor of the vehicle. Release  two clips on each side then pull gently to remove the center clip.
      Positi on console tray (if still attached) to remove two T15 screws at bottom of infotainment/climate control unit.  Unscrew top four T15 screws holding infotainment/climate control in place at top of unit.  Using pry bar, pull infotainment unit away, releasing approximately 8 clips around the unit. Use caution, HVAC ducting will come out with the unit, so only pull directly out.  Disconnect Unit or lean out to continue on for access to gauge cluster. 
      Using a plastic pry tool, release the leather infotainment trim, but only along the side of the cluster.  Using a plastic pry tool, remove the leather gauge cluster hood. The approximately 6 clips are released pulling straight up.  Remove the fuse access panel on the driver’s side door opening.  Using a T15 bit, remove the two screws holding the Light Control / 4X4 Switch unit in place.  Using a pry tool, pull the Light Control / 4X4 Switch unit directly away from the dash. There are approximately 8 clips holding it in place. 
      Unscrew three 7mm screws holding the front cluster trim piece in place.  Using your hands, pry the cluster trim piece away from behind the steering wheel, including the trim piece on the top of the steering wheel column that is attached. 
      Remove four 7mm screws holding gauge cluster in place. 
      For 2019 trucks, slide red locking tab and lift cam lock to remove cluster harness. 
      Reverse steps to reassemble.   
       
      Please comment with any suggestions, edits, or comments. I'd like this to be as helpful as possible.

      Ever since my last oil change and recall service to the brake pad sensors, I have been hearing a frequent double popping noise on the right side of my truck, seemingly favoring the front wheel area. This noise is impossible to forcibly repeat, however, like clockwork it always occurs twice (two double pops) on my way to and from work (and yes, the road is absolutely smooth, no bumps or pot holes to cause this). This typically occurs at around 60mpg and every 5-10 miles. Everyone I have talked to including the service department at my local GM have no clue what is going on. The truck will be going into the shop soon for troubleshooting. Any ideas what might be going on? Anyone with a similar issue?

      I purchased a brand new Suburban in 2015 from Sawgrass Chevrolet in November 2015. Over the last 6 months my husband and I noticed the paint on the hood of the vehicle is faded and has noticiable swirls. I had it evaluated by a auto body shop and they confirmed the paint is defective and there is no clear coat. I've also been told by the dealership that this is a very common issue they have seen on the hood/ over the engine. Yet, there is nothing they can do, I must contact GM. How is it possible that this is a know issue and there is no resolution. My car is just over four years old! My 10 year old Ford Expedition's paint looked close to brand new compared to this!!!
      Does anyone have any advice or recommendations? CLASS Action lawsuit?????

      2019 GMC Canyon all terrain bought in July 2019 with 12000km on it has clicking noise in drivers side between doors around seat belt adjuster (B- pillar area). Had the truck to two separate dealerships 7 times altogether with no success after the dealer trying different things including:
       
      1.Replaced rear side door arm rest cover trim 
      2.Center pillar upper trim panel replaced 3.Replaced clips in door
      4.Replaced power door lock actuator (which was very loose according to them) 5.Replaced all door weather striping.
       
      Not something you would expect from a new truck. Any ideas what this could be?
