2006....I'd get it to the dealer as a warranty fix.
For my 97, the wiper motor was on the inside of the firewall, with the motor bracket connections to the wipers underneath that mesh cover under the windshield. In my 2007, the motor moved to underneath the windshield mesh cover.
Either way, all the connectors are underneath that mesh cover area directly underneath the front windshield. If you look for where the windshield wipers are attached (and pivot back and forth), you'll see where you need to get to.

It might just be where the wiper arm connects to the shaft. Not sure about the 2007 but there's usually a nut that holds the wiper arm on a splined shaft.

So nobody else has had a problem with rattle noises coming from the doors or wind noise on drivers side?

Nope, I have a 2007 LTZ with none of the problems you reference.

I've seen posts in other forums discussing wind noise and rattles. Most were resolved by dealer service depts. Might even be a TSB on it.

That is exactly what it was, took two min to fix
I had called a chevy dealer this am and they said they could look at it at around 11 to 12 and maybe get it fixed today. we were leaving one home to go home to another over the mountains/snow/rain and needed to be gone by twelve
decidd to try another dealer, he said , try tightening the nut under the black cap , this happens all the time in this climate. viola , fixed
thanks for the advice though .

Michelin now has wiper blades that fit the 2007 Tahoe -
The Optima (at Target) and the Radius (at Wal-Mart)
Both places charge around $15 each.
They are the exact same blade - its just the name is different.
I bought a set for the Tahoe (22 inch) and liked them so much that I also bought a pair for my daughters car.
Just look in the package before you buy - make sure it has the new style connector inside -
A few weeks ago the Michelin Radius blades at Wal-Mart did not have the connector - but now they do.

Do you have it in AWD - All Wheel Drive Setting? . I would suggest 2WD at all times unless the weather deems it necessary such as heavy rains or snow (4WD). All cars that are AWD, are known to have faster tread wear. So, 30K is about accurate if you leave in AWD gear at all times.
If not in AWD, I have close to 30K myself and they are fine. But I do rotate them every other oil change. I ahbe it in 2WD at all times - plus, this will give better gas mileage.
Hope this helps...

can you confirm if this is also true for the 07 avalanche? i was quoted $110 for the removal, painting and re instalation of the chevy bowties. seems a bit steep seeing that its just plastic being painted black. is the gold part of the rear bowtie only held on by tape? and any idea about the front as well?
