popping noise when backing up or coming to a full stop and then accelerating
maybe these can help…
Some owners of a 2007-08 Escalade, Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Sierra, or Yukon may experience a pop or tick type noise from the left front dash area when driving over bumps. The noise may occurr when backing out of a parking spot or going over small speed bumps in a parking lot. The noise is worse when the vehicle is cold and may go away at higher temperatures.
The condition may be caused by a loose spot weld that attaches the L-bracket from the left inner fender panel to the front bulkhead (fig. 17).
Add three bolts with nuts through existing holes in the left fender bracket and the fender inner panel (fig. 18). The fender bracket is spot welded to the inner panel and attaches to the front-of-dash with two nuts and studs through the dash panel.
