Mine is still in the right front fender area or underneath the passenger door area. Only above 50MPH. Doesn't appear to be any missing fasteners from the wheel well liner either. Zip tied a could of wiring bundles, but no luck. The search continues.

You're really reinforcing the growing perception/opinion that GM couldn't care less about their customers with this very real problem that has been PROVEN to be completely fixable. Multiple aftermarket tuners have been able to completely fix this issue. Why won't you?

Kind of rough don't you think? I think it is pretty cool to have a customer care rep on this forum in case I needed it. No sense in taking out frustration on a guy that is trying to help members. They improved the transmissions with our feedback for the 2017 V6s, and those with 2015 and 2016s it's really not bad.

The GM reps on the forum are limited to what they can do. Most are just a path to a dealer to try to solve the issue. Most have their hands tied so please do not take it out on them. The people that need to hear those comments are back at GM telling them what they can or can't do.

My thought is if the computers are bouncing around that can't be good for long term life. I know factory computers are pretty bullet proof form heat and vibration but there has to be limits.

I would hope they have a recall to put in a foam pad to absorb the shock.

anyone experiencing at red light take off if you punch it a vibration or rattle before the turbo spools up? and only then does it happen, im wondering if the turbo has an issue or its that electrical box guys on here are saying it needs to be remounted with rubber behind it. But it isnt at idle. Just when i mash on the throttle from take off, just till the truck gets moving then its gone. Its like the turbo is having trouble spooling up with the load before it gets rolling. But im not ruling out other things touching, this is just what it feels like. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I've had a number of rattles:
First was the ECU mount. Remounted the mount with RTV added and used RTV on contact points when remounting ECU.
I've had a number of loose screws in the dash around the glove box.
Transfer case controller was loose and rattled in its mount.
Interior fuse panel rattled in its clips.
Intake snorkel inside fender was loose and rattled. Pretty sure it's quiet now as I removed it.

My front passenger wheel well liner still drones with the engine around 1700 rpm. All fasteners are in place. I'm about to pull it and go for a drive. Also wondering if pulling the snorkel has anything to do with this. Hmmm... (edit: I did reinstall the snorkel. It had nothing to do with any rattling or buzzing but removing it did cause some high pitched intake noise that I did not care for.)

In the process of all this I also found sensor cables dangling on the exhaust flex tube and power seat cables routed over rotating machinery. Rerouted those and found unused keepers for holding cables out of harms way.
This just in...
Give your front fender a gentle fist bump just a little below the windshield pillar. When I do this to mine, either side - it plays Wish You Were Here.

The photo is looking back on the passenger side. The hood is open and the headlight replacement prevention shield is removed. There is a plastic spacer between the fender and the forward structure. It is about centered at the top of the wheel arch. It is bonded to the fender with foam adhesive but it attaches to the structure at two round holes with a couple hard plastic expanding tabs. There is no padding of any sort between the spacer and the body structure. Of course it rattles!

I'm thinking the frame side needs a little RTV or construction adhesive.
Second update.
I worked a little construction adhesive (Liquid Nails) under the brackets at top and bottom. It's now quiet as can be. Easiest access is to pull the fender liner and look up inside.
