    Not sure if others notice this but when I take my foot of the brake pedal and shift the gas, it makes a clunky noise. I believe it's the sound of the spring returning the pedal to it's upright position. Maybe it's my driving style that causes this but I have never noticed it other vehicles.

    Anyone notice it on theirs?

    I guess no one else experiences this?

    Or am I just anal? I don't think so; I can hear it over my radio. It bothers the hell out of me.

    I will look into a foam bumper down there. Good idea. Thanks.

    Mine does this too. I have tried to add a peice of rubber to quiet it down, but due to the angles of the linkage, it didnt work. I didnt sped much time with it, and if you remove your foot slowly from the brake peddle, its not noticable.

    Exactly what I hear! Drives me crazy. Ther is got to be something that the dealership can do. Does it ever sound deeper than from under the dash? Like it might be a caliper clunking or something of the sort?

    I hear it in my truck also. I only hear it when I take my foot off of the brake first thing in the morning as I am backing out of the garage. The sound seems to be coming from the front end, though, and not from my brake pedal.

    I am bothered by this also. Sounds so cheap when it does it. At 1st I thought the pedal arm was loose until I got down there and looked at it. My old trucks did not do this.
