Angry Metallic clicking under dash PLEASE HELP

So I have his metal on metal clicking coming from what seems the engin bay of my truck and I hear it below the windshield behind the driver side dash. The truck has been to the dealership 6 times for the full day and they cannot find it. They put chassis ears on it and they said it was narrowed down to the "A" pillar where the rad is bolted on and they told me they fixed it yet its still there. I'm going insane it only has 30000km on it is a continual tapping over slight bumps in the road and uneven surfaces. The stabilizer links have been checked as well as the lower steering column replaced. I am listed for ideas and its driving me insane. Can anyone help me. I have attached a video of the noise. I have also had the dash apart and every connector has foam. Thanks so much.

Brandon.

brguzz....I have the same thing! It`s not all the time, but quite a bit. It sounds like a click, or gargling noise on the left side of the drivers dash. If you get this solved, please post it!

My first thought would be a loose strut, since it only happens going over bumps. But dave says he has the same thing, however, I am puzzled because a clicking noise is nothing like a gargling noise. So, dave, do you have two noises or am I just misinterpreting what a gargling noise is?

I had the exact same issue. After two trips to the dealer they finally discovered that the front body mounts were loose.

I get this noise too. It only happens when I slip though, so I think it has to do with the traction control

So the quick update is it is fixed it was one of the bolts and bushings on the rad was causing the metal of the rad to hit the metal on the "A" pillar causing it to transfer through the body and make noise. Hope this helps anyone with this issue.

Thanks for the update brguzz. Just to clarify my issue. I t does not happen when I go over bumps. It happens when I hit about 80kmh. It is a rapid clickety clickety noise in the same area you were having it in. It sounds like something rattling when a certain wind speed is reached. I'll check it out. Maybe something loose in there. Thanks.
