Need to check the model year. on the VIN then. Should be an "A" for 2010, "B" for 2011. If the car in question is a 2011 then it wouldn't have the issue. This is the letter that precedes the "9" for Oshawa. No need to chase ghosts if the washers are already there.

If that's the case then I don't know.

2010 SS M6 with Gforce axles. Do you need the thrust washers on the axles? What if you don't have them on?

Not sure on that. I'd guess that the makers of those axles would have said something about it. If it's not making noise then it won't hurt anything.

My early build 2010 M6 SS has been making that clicking sound since new... I always thought it was in the rear brakes, but this seems to be exactly what it is. I think I still have some powertrain warranty left, I'm gonna call the dealership tomorrow with this TSB info and see if I can get it in and fixed... thanks for the heads up!

We are glad to hear that you will be taking your car into the dealership. Please keep us updated with the outcome of your visit. If you would like me to check if you still have any warranties that may apply to your car, please PM us your name, VIN, current mileage, contact info and preferred dealership!



I look forward to hearing from you!

Well, I called the dealership today and explained the issue, also provided the TSB#. Was told my powertrain warranty expired in June. (less than 2 months ago! ) The car only has 11,400 miles on it, but was put into service in June of 2009. (One of the first 5th gens to hit the streets) So they will not do the service without my paying for it out of pocket completely. Estimated at "about $150.00" This issue has been there since new, I just assumed it was the brake pads sticking on the rotors and never gave it much thought until reading this thread.

I'm sure it's one of the cars that never had the thrust washers installed from day 1, and has had the clicking in the rear end always.


Is there any way to get this service covered by GM since it's in fact been a problem since new and a direct result of the factory not installing all of the required parts? I'm less than 2 months past the 5 year powertrain warranty anyhow, and the mileage is way below 50,000. I would hope GM would be willing to help me out in a case like this.

Ya, that 'canned' response is what we get from that user account. I had gotten sick of it at one point. But it's just known now that the info they give comes from a pamphlet or something.

My car is dying....... Call the dealer.
My engine blew up ...... Call the dealer.
My wheels feel off ...... Call the dealer.
My wife left me ...... Call the dealer.

Anyone have a "real" number I could call to talk to someone of authority at GM about this? Seems like if the factory forgot to put thrust washers in the rear ends of several thousand cars they should cover the installation of them on my 11,000 mile car.

I agree. They didn't cover mine here because once I put the blower on my drivetrain warranty was void. I asked them shouldn't they cover it if it were left out of the car. I mean it's not like hard driving or wear is the culprit but it was LEFT OFF THE CAR.

In my opinion they should put it up and if the thrust washers are missing they add some.

They told me mine would be only covered under my bumper-bumper. Which was only 3/36000 that expired March 2014.

I think they should cover it regardless. They forgot a part is BS.

I took mine in just recently and guess what?
Drivers side had washer, passenger side had none!
Thought this was only a limited amount if 2010's? Guess not since mine is a 2011.
Dealer replaced both washers and nuts under my drivetrain warranty without even bringing the warranty up.
My bumper to bumper has expired.
Great workmanship eh GM.

I dont think my noise from the rear end is the same. Because I hear about 3 or 4 thudding or clunking noises in a row, after I have come to a stop and turned off the engine.
