TSB is Technical Service Bulletin - its not a recall because not all vehicles are affected. Yes you can call the dealership about this - and even if they dont know about it the can go into their service system and view it. Just set up an appointment and youll be set

I have tracked exactly where the vibration is coming from. If I hold down the door panel on the HINGE side of the door handle the vibration stops. Is this an area the tape is installed? Someone else might want to try holding down this area (to the right of driver door handle) and see if it stops for them too

The TSB talks about applying the tape to the inside handle bezel. However if applying pressure to the door panel to the right of the inside handle stops the buzzing you could be achieving the same results when the tapeis apllied to the bezel. Unless that's been already done.

There's also been reports that the leading edge of the door panels nearest the door hinges has been a source for speaker induced buzzing. Basically applying the flock tape in this area is the repair also.

I had mine in the shop three times for the buzz. Finally they put flocking tape along the edge of the panel near the hidge edge like NitroLarry said. Seemed to have fixed it yay!!!

I don't know if this is the same thing?

My left speaker on the dashboard makes a weird sound intermittently - it's not a buzz, it's more like a chk-chk-chk. It only happens when I am using the radio, it doesn't happen with SAT at all. Sometimes I can drive for miles without hearing it, but then sometimes it happens every couple of minutes. Have anyone else heard this or is it my old-age hearing? :)

I just got my speaker buzz fix yesterday. ill showed the dealer the TBS and they took care of it. Now when I shut the door or turn the speakers up no more buzz or rattle. The doors sound more solid.

Ive heard a higher pitched sound similar to that only when playing CD's - however it's not all cd's..but it defintely is annoying..

Hey, I am new here and have a Black SLT. I have been to the dealer 3 times and at the second, they installed FOAM? It went away for a day and came back with a vengeance! The speaker blew? Third service appointment the problem was again fixed and is back? It is also more prominent and frustrating when I plug in my IPOD through the system. I have tried the different EQ settingd on the IPOD, flat, off etc. and it is just awfull. It is now buzzing on the passenger door as well??? I will make another appointment and bring this TSB in, hopefully they will fix the problem
