Shaky, rattle-like noise coming from front passenger side

Asked by Dec 22, 2010 at 02:56 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Anyone know what a rattle-like noise coming from the front passenger side of my 03 Trailblazer could be? I literally just got it out of the shop (transmission went + had a gas leak) and now notice this unsettling noise - it sounds like something is loose somewhere, but I can't trace the sound as I only hear it while I'm driving....

I love this truck so much and this is the first time I've had any issues in 2 years - and they all seem to be coming at the same time!

I'm not sure if this is what you're talking about because you're kinda vague, but chevy doors are known to sag, so they'll rattle around.

Sounds like it could be your front stabilizer linkages.

it's sort of squeaky, I guess. It's gonna sound odd, but it sort of sounds like when you sit on a squeaky bed.... Just 2 small noises. It's like something tiny is loose and kind of hovering, hitting the bottom of the car as it swings back and forth. But I checked underneath and didn't see anything. Thanks for replying! And Happy Holidays!

Thanks for your reply - and I know it's vague but I honestly can't even describe it. It definitely sounds as though its coming from underneath the truck - in the front 1/3 part of the vehicle to the passenger side. It's sort of like something tiny is loose and hitting the bottom of my truck, making noise as it swings back and forth. But I did check and I didn't see or feel anything, so I'm still not sure. But thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely do a door check tomorrow! Happy holidays!

thanks so much, I'm going to get my coworker to check those out when I get to work on Tuesday ( I work at a limo company, so he knows what he's doing!) Happy Holidays!
