Popping sound opening/closing door

TT member and fellow PRG installer VShortt helped me out with this one last night. When opening/closing the door I would hear 2 pops and thought it was a lube problem on the positive stop guide. VShortt pointed out that the problem is that the screw holding the guide to the body. My other fellow PRG installer MOTO-MAX-TITAN (aka 2 second Max) quickly busted out with the 10mm socket and tightened the bolt on all 4 doors and solved my problem! It really helps to know people!

Here's the culprit bolt:

Great thread Squid.
What about “thud sound when stopping & accelerating”?
Check the rubber floor protectors covering the utility track. They can slam up against the cab when stopping quickly & or slam against the tailgate under heavy acceleration.

Seems like I have seen 4 threads on this & can’t find-a-one.

Excellent suggestion. Found a thread and added it to the list. Wonder who was the first to solve and share this fix?
Thanks. :rockon

I have just purchased my Titan and this is exactly the type of info I was looking for from this forum. Your efforts are appreciated from this newbie and I hope to contribute any other issues that arise on my end.
Now that it has stopped raining I will be able to get pix of my truck for this forum.
Thanks again,

Window Creaking in Up Position or Faint Ticking

Here is one that I had. There were actually 2 or 3 threads, but the final solution was in this one. A couple of people said it didn't work for them, but it was a definate fix for me, maybe they mis-understood me or the fix. The guys over at ClubArmada did they same thing and it was a definate fix for them also and they have a couple of pics. here are both threads. This one actually has a link to clubarmada.
