Got your attention didn't I?

Stroking the shaft was the old way, now they are replacing the upper intermediate shaft:

Since these are copyrighted documents I will not post the document, but will post the doc numbers and TSB number

Document ID# 1893252

#00-02-35-003M - (01/31/2007)


This is the latest update from the General regarding these shafts. No more "stroking it"...

I got an email from GM the other day about that TSB, saying that if I needed service to bring the truck in and they would do just that, replace it.

I also heard somewhere that you can call onstar and get the lastest updates and service bulletins from them? Any idea on this rumor?

So this new bulletin, what exactly does it say? Are the new shafts or "fix" available? I want mine fixed already. Mine has been doing it for a while now and the truck barely has 13k miles on it. I haven't done anything about it because I've been waiting to see what happens.

this isn't warranty if the vehicle is past its 3/36 is it?

I think that the 3/36 is based on the time the truck was previously serviced for the same issue. For example, if you came in at 30,000 and had the issue corrected (performed "stroking the shaft"), then you should be covered for that issue until 66,000 miles. If you came in at 40,000 miles, you should be covered for the new fix.

Correct me if I am wrong here.....

The bulletin really dosn't say all that much other than to replace the shaft with new P/N 19153614.

So are you saying that the NEWEST bulletin says that GM now has a new replacement steering shaft?

i think its only 12-12 for them to fix as 30000 you have to 42000 or 12 months but that could have changed to.

GM posted a TSB yesterday (1/31/07) for the infamous steering shaft clunk. I checked with my dealer and they already have them.

Subject: Clunking Noise Under Hood and Can Be Felt in Steering Wheel and/or Steering Column (Replace Upper Intermediate Steering Shaft (I-Shaft) Assembly) #00-02-35-003M - (01/31/2007)



Models: 2002-2006 Cadillac Escalade Models

1999-2007 Chevrolet Silverado Models (Classic)

2000-2006 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe Models

2002-2006 Chevrolet Avalanche

1999-2007 GMC Sierra Models (Classic)

2000-2006 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL Models

2003-2006 HUMMER H2



Attention: This Service Bulletin DOES NOT include Mid-Size Utilities such as Buick Rainier, Chevrolet TrailBlazer Models, GMC Envoy Models or Oldsmobile Bravada. Refer to Service Bulletin 02-02-35-006A or newer for Mid-Size Utilities.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This bulletin is being revised to update the repair procedure with a permanent fix. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 00-02-35-003L (Section 02 -- Steering).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Condition
Some customers may comment on a clunk-type noise coming from under the hood that also can be felt in the steering wheel. These conditions may be more noticeable when turning at low speeds on rough road surfaces.

Diagnostic Tips
Use the information below to help diagnose the source of the noise.

• Frame Snap and/or Popping Type Noise -- A frame snap or popping type noise can be duplicated on rough or smooth road surfaces with steering wheel input to the left or the right. This type of noise can be HEARD and is typically louder with the windows rolled down. For additional information, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 03-08-61-002F or newer -- Snap/Popping Type Noise Coming from Front of Vehicle (Remove Front Crossmember, Change Fastener Orientation).

• Intermediate Shaft Clunk -- Intermediate shaft clunk is heard and FELT in the steering wheel and/or steering column area, typically while driving on rough road surfaces with steering wheel input.

Correction
DO THIS
DON'T DO THIS

Replace the I-Shaft with P/N 19153614.
Do NOT lubricate or exercise the I-Shaft.


Important:

• I-shaft P/N 19155614 has been designed to replace previous designed dampened and non-dampened I-shafts. The physical difference in the yoke size will accommodate all vehicles listed in this bulletin.

• Due to the design of the new I-shaft, it is not possible to lubricate/grease the I-shaft.

I have a question for you guys who have had this problem. Do you HEAR it as the bulletin states, or do you more or less feel it in the steering and it feels like something is loose?

I have the problem when hitting small bumps turning left or right like on on-ramps and it feels like something is loose, but when I try shaking stuff, it all feels tight.

Yes I can hear it and feel it anytime the truck is moving.

It's been done by someone else. As I stated in my first post, this is copyrighted stuff so I don't post it.

Yes the guy who posted it is "the man" but my way gets you the info needed to go see the dealer and does not infringe on any copyrights

Thanks John.

Hopefully this isn't another GM band-aid.
