    Hi all, well i've been hearing this sound from the passenger side for a week or more, I have taken everything that moves out of the cab, and i can still hear it..... it seems to me it comes from the passenger side near the center console below the floor mat or carpet...... any ideas???

    Im uploading a video on Photobucket, but its taking forever.....

    Lmao on the wife thing..... :p

    Seriously... the sound is annoying the hell out of me.... i cant remember when it started, and im almost certain now that it comes from the side of the center console on pass. side..... I punched the area and it sounds almost like a metallic thing is loose there......

    It only happens when i accelerate or break, but not everytime.... sighs....

    not to jinx ed, but his catalytic converter will probably be stolen by the time he crawls under the truck.

    Oh yeah, and the noise is only going to get worse after you get married.

    also check the wire bundles behind the glovebox. These have been known to cause a buzzing noise in the past.

    Maybe you're hearing a small group of underpants gnomes coming to steal your underwear. Start wearing your belt tighter.

    Have you checked underneath the seat? Maybe there's a loose wire connector rattling against the seat tracks. Or maybe the seat belt is hitting the center console?

    I found the issue, let me upload the information...

    OK this was my problem.....

    Some weeks ago I used a set of wrenchs, and left a couple behind my passenger door, well, hte damn things went straight into the heating duct below the pass. seat....

    [​IMG]

    So i had to take off the front passenger sill panels and lift the carpet so i could reach the duct with my hands and detach it....

    [​IMG]

    And thats it....

    Hahaha. Good thing you found it, you wouldn't want those thieves taking apart your truck with your own tools!

    If it makes you feel better, A few years ago, I had a noise on my 2000 that happened when I would brake or accel. It was a metal sound that would gradually build up and end with a "CLANG". Turned out the my lost 15mm socket was in the seat track.
