I used some peel and stick sound deadening mat material.
I had purchased a box of these so I could stick a few sheets to the side of the generator to quiet it somewhat (dismal failure... no db reduction whatsoever). If you want to fix your faucet noise in a similar fashion but don't want to buy a whole box, PM me.

MARK - Excellent fix. AS must have known coz they have this shiny, metallic, padded sheet on that location in mine. Funny thing is I had multiple instances where I opened that panel, looked at that padded sheet and kept wondering why they put it there? But that was because I had very early on my AI's life, I removed the original faucet and replaced with non-pullout faucet. So without seeing that metal weight there, I couldn't figure out it's purpose. The irony is you have the pullout and did not have the padded sheet. I don't have a pullout yet have the padded sheet.
You, sir, solved my mystery shiny padded sheet purpose.
