#111 of 130 2001 Silverado C1500 HD Rear End Noise
Dec 29, 2008 (6:16 pm)
I own a 2001 Crew Cab Silverado C1500 HD. The truck makes a rolling popping noise when moving from a dead stop. It only occurs only during the first few revolutions of the drive train. This occurs more after the truck has been driven for 10 minutes or so. The sound can be heard and felt in the vehicle.
I have had it in for service several times and they cannot find anything. Does anyone know what causes this noise and is it destructive???

I have an 06' Silverado with a stuck tailgate,I tried WD-40 but no luck. The handle clicks to unlatch it and the left side unlocks, but the right side latch doesn't seem to be moving. I tried pulling, pushing and damn near kicking it open! Please send me some advice s I don't need the dealer. Thanks

I have the exact problem with my 2007 Silverado ( New Style ). My tonneau seems like it could just fly off at 65 mph. I was thinking of a Great Stuff material, but don't want it looking like crap. What was your fix if any?

The right side actuating rod on my 2001 Sierra tailgate handle came loose and I had to remove the bezel and stick my finger in there to pull the rod manually. The plastic rod retainer is broken and I have not yet found a source for replacement parts. Duct tape worked for a few months. If anyone knows where to buy the rod ends, please inform us.

This sounds like the normal noise my locking differential makes for the first few yards while unlocking.

The green plastic clip that holds the right side rod broke. Where did you get your replacement clip?

Those darn cheap plastic clips!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhoo either try your local big box parts store and look in the "HELP" section
(aka Motormite or Dorman) as they have a bunch of china knockoff replacement parts. Bring in your broken clip and look for a replacement assortment pack of
I know the dealer won't have the clip and a new replacement handle with clips is about $80. The HELP knockoff replacement with new clips is $30.
Heres a company that sells them tho:
Looks like this?:
