I'd like to see the full text of TSB#1576962, or any other TSB related to the tip in/tip out clunk in the early AWD V8 SRX. Anyone have access to the GM database, or alldata.com? NHTSA offers summaries, but nothing else. I'm headed back to the dealer today (2nd time), and would like to have all the information I possibly can. Appointment is at 2. Thanks!

Subject: Driveline Clunk Noise On Light Acceleration (Tip In) and/or Deceleration (Tip Out) Most Noticeable at Lower Speeds and/or Firm Down Shift When Coming to a Stop (Reprogram TCM and/or ECM) #04-07-30-044 - (12/10/2004)



Models: 2004-2005 Cadillac SRX

2005 Cadillac STS

with Transmission 5L40-E (RPO MX5) or Transmission 5L50-E (RPO MV3) and

All Wheel Drive (AWD) (RPO MX7)

Built Prior To November 1, 2004




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Condition
Some customers may comment on a driveline clunk noise on light acceleration (tip in) and/or deceleration (tip out) most noticeable at lower speeds; other customers may also comment on a firm/harsh coast down shift as the vehicle comes to a stop.

Cause
This condition may be caused by the TCM and or ECM calibrations.

Correction
Important:

• The 2004 SRX AWD V6 requires reprogramming of BOTH the ECM and TCM calibrations. The TIS screen will reference a driveline clunk concern for both calibrations.

• The 2004 SRX AWD V8 requires reprogramming of ONLY ECM calibration. The TIS screen will reference a revised fuel tank level diagnostic which does contain the driveline clunk concern calibration fix.

• The 2005 SRX and STS AWD V6 DOES NOT require any reprogramming. The calibrations were introduced into these vehicles at the start of the 2005 V6 AWD production.

• The 2005 SRX and STS AWD V8 requires reprogramming of ONLY the ECM. The TIS screen will reference the drive line clunk concern.

Thanks!

Very odd. According to my dealer, both the ECU and TCU needed re-programmed. He claimed that the ECU had been, but the TCU had not, and he reprogrammed the TCU. Also, no mention of the low-lash transfer case. Is there another related TSB, or is the transfer case replacement more low-key?
