Lifter Tick? [video]

Picking the C5 community's brains. Taking the car in for service this Friday, curious if they should look at this.

How many miles? Also I see it's an Auto.. take it in. There's been a TSB out for 4 years now on the AFM's lifter setup, ticks just like that and it's a fault in the system.

Sounds more like an exhaust leak in the video.

~16,000 miles. Bought brand new last June with 6 miles on the odometer. Car is 100% stock, no modifications.

I thought the TSB was only up to 2011's?

Yep, sounds like valve train noise to me. It's normal but i would try to get your lifters replaced while you still have a warranty.

Dealership just called and said it sounds normal. Then again, they couldn't hear the rubbing sound from the steering system, so who knows. I'll keep an eye on it, though. A little more peeved about the steering rubbing noise/feel since it's obviously there.

AFM Lifters are a headache waiting to happen thanks to GM's brilliant design. I personally want to get my lifters replaced with BTR Hydraulic rollers and get rid of that sound all together.
