GEN 2 It sounds like a gnome slapping a tape measure around under there.

    IWE until proven otherwise. The dealership should be able to put vacuum to the system while getting your sunroof fixed and give you a definitive answer.

    I've yet to find anything that looks or feels wrong. I'll continue to listen for anything else that seems off.

    I'll ask them to check to see if it's the IWE and not a gnome. I'm really hoping it's a gnome. I could train him to do all kinds of cool stuff.

    IWE. If it's a metal sounding noise from under the driver, that goes away after you let up on the gas, it's likely the vacuum check valve. It's about a $9 part. I had this repaired on a 2020 Raptor after 26 miles. There's a TSB 19-2252. I took mine in, and after the fix, no more noise. You can test by putting your truck into 4x4A mode. This will make the sound go away. It's an extremely common issue, so your dealer will likely have the part in stock.

    You and I have very similar definitions of a normal day. I am heartened to know of another waiting patiently for the arrival of the Great Pumpkin.

    Yup, I forgot about this in the opening responses. quick and dirty way to rule this in or out is retest in 4a instead of 2h.

    No... you’re really not. They’re a PITA and practically untrainable. Not to mention they smell like wet dog when they’re clean and worse when they’re not. Which is a lot. There’s a reason they’re banished to the garden to be garden gnomes.

    Ok, this thread has gotten way off topic!

    LOL

    this is different from other FRF discussions... how, exactly ? :-D

    I do hope it’s a simple IWE solenoid, easily replaceable that chases that gnome away though.

    I vote for the heat shield theory. Had a similar sound from the rear. Heat shield was vibrating against tailpipe.
