Yes.

Manuals will here it on acceleration in reverse or forward gear.

It manifests it's self so repeatably in the auto because load can be put on it without moving the car.

yes the manual acts different. When I would pull out - first under power- it would "tink" then it started to "tink" when you let off the gas.

Yup. Weight and load transfer would do it.

They replaced the axle on one side, called me and wanted to keep the car an extra day because it was still clicking and wanted to replace the other side. 1 week after I got it back, still clicking. I brought it back to the dealer and they found the TSB for the washer and now the clicking is gone.

So they replaced the axles and STILL didn't put the washers in it....... LMMFAO!!!

You can't make this stuff up sometimes. Doesn't earn them a lot of confidence from me.

Well, Got the nuts and "thrust" washers from Rodgers. Becky dropped them off for me Thursday. I got up this morning and reviewed your DIY video and headed to the garage. Had them on in about 2 hours. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and "WALLAAA" Noise gone. Hard to believe that nasty sounding noise is cured by a chinsy 3 cent (3 dollars from GM) washer. This really should have been a recall. I can't believe they just left them out and then just said "Shhhhhh don't tell anyone unless they ask. I was looking up the torque specs in my set of GM Service Manuals and it even states that If the washers are not present to add them. Thanks for the video documentation PQ! I'm positive you saved me from some broken speed sensors. I would have trashed the first one for sure.
Sooo good to have that problem behind me. Ready to enjoy the car some this weekend.Thanks again PQ!

This missing washer issue is automatics only, right?

Nope. Like 1BADSS said, it's all of them. Even the V6 cars.

Luckily the sensor and wire are only 17.00 ish. lol Picked one up yesterday. I normally order all of my stuff from Maureen and Becky but this was an easy swing in and grab item.

Glad it worked out for you.

The weird thing is when mine started not many people reported the same thing --because after some time they started putting them in -- so it was really hard to figure out, now you guys are starting to have the issue, it so nice to share info on here.

Agreed 100%

It's what is so awesome about forums in general. But this place is more personable and we help each other out.

Funny how this issue just manifested it's self to me after 60k miles. Some it was only after 5k or so.

I just got my car back fromt the deal last week. they replaced both my rear axles based on the info I found on another thread here about the clicking noise.
Glad it's finally fixed. Was bugging the crap out of me.
