Default Got it fixed

I took my truck in today, and it was the clamp issue with the exhaust that was causing the noise. They said there is a bulletin out regarding this issue, but isn't a full blown recall.

Is the hook that needs to be bent somewhat hidden? Is it on the driver's side, passenger side, etc? I'm probably just not looking in the correct location. Thanks.

More info please . The noise at 1600 rpm in my truck sounds like exhaust. I found a rattle at the forward clamp via a rubber mallet. I adjusted slightly and it seemed to have stopped the rattle with the mallet while under the truck but the noise while driving is still present.

Drives me bat shit crazy.

Just giving this a bump.

Can anyone provide the TSB number or additional information on the exact location of the hook that is causing the problem? Thanks.

I'm the worst person to talk about truck mechanics, as any time I try to fix something I usually make things worse. So to explain what they did to fix it, I can't. I printed off this thread and gave it to the service technician. After the service he said the problem was the described exhaust hook/clamp issue in this thread. He said there's even a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue. I didn't ask for any details as he would be speaking a foreign language to me. If you can't find it yourself I would recommend taking this thread to your dealer, and they should be able to fix it.

If you could email them to hook you up with the TSB that would be awesome.

Had my 1500 into the dealer for another issue. While it was on the lift both the tech and I checked over the exhaust system. No hooks. My truck was built in June so maybe the hook is only on trucks built earlier (just guessing).

Still have the engine vibration at 1800 - 2000 RPMs. The techs can't figure out what is causing it. Frustrating!

Do any of you guys have a pic of where this hook/clamp is? I am not able to look at my truck right now, but I have the same sound on mine. Thanks!
