If you have a link to this I would like to have the entire service bulletin to take with me to the dealer.

Thanks

Thanks to Mr. Evans, I believe all involved have a good solution to the problem at hand. Kudos to him; I have extended karma for his effort. I would like to now post my comment:

Would you like some cheese with the original whine? The entire concept of being able to hear a noise at the back of a Suburban is a new concept to me, and I drive one ... that is now officially vintage. I believe that my third-seat passengers would never hear the window, even if it was whistling six ways to Sunday, let alone me.

My wife and I have to practically YELL at each other, at highway speeds, to be heard over the road noise in my '84 Suburban. As a consequence, we don't have the lungs for many discussions while on the road.

I'm not complaining, though.

Tom

Just checking to see if there are any updates on this issue after the dealership became aware of the service bulletin.

Thanks

Smile Update on wind noise repair

We finally took our '07 suburban in for service just before Thanksgiving and I gave the dealer the Service bulletin number from this thread and we had no problems- they replaced the gasket and "bumpers" on the glass. We towed with it last weekend and the whistling was gone. Thanks for the info!

I was finally able to get my suburban in to the dealer on the wind noise from the rear lift glass. I gave them the GM service bulletin number and they replaced the entire lift glass, gasket and bumpers. I have not towed yet, but the glass seems to fit much tighter.

Lets hope it took care of the problem.

Don

Excellent..keep us posted.

Now that's great American customer service!

Not like that infamous "engine sludge" problem that one of the foreign mfrs tried to cover up!

Glad you Guys/Gals got your Burbs straightened out...they are awesome vehicles.

I am taking mine in tomorrow, armed with bulletin number...I have the same exact problem with my 07 Suburban. It is maddeningly loud at times, especially while towing into headwinds.

You should not have a problem, the service ticket writer pulled it up on his computer while I was standing there. Detailed what needed to be done. I will find out on 5/8 if it worked, we are pulling out for a couple of weeks.

Question Why??

My question is why did they put a lift glass window on the back door anyway. It is to high to be of any use. A friend of mine with a 2007 Suburban did not even know that it would open until I showed him how to open it. I never use it.

Hi, I have a lift glass on my Lincoln and I'm glad I do because I can't open the lift gate while hitched to my trailer. [lift gate is too close to my tongue jack]

We have a 2002 Yukon XL, and we use the rear lift glass all the time. I leave it open when I am backing up to hitch the trailer, so I can hear better the directions that my other half is giving me. It's also useful when hauling long things....wood, pipe, etc. Our 1994 Suburban had the lift glass combined with a tail gate (versus the current lift-gate), which I preferred....better for lunch-time tail-gating.

I am glad to hear that your dealer took care of the problem!
