I have not. I'm trying to get the dealer to tear it down and look at the transmission. First step is getting them to admit there is an issue. I refuse to accept "that's normal"

SoCalAdam I'm also looking for the final resolution to this issue. The soft to mid chirp has now morphed into what can only be described as a loud metal on metal scrape like two heavy metal plates being dragged across each other.

This started from the day I bought it as was told it would go away over time. I'm now near 30k miles and it has only gotten worse.

SC Grizz in an earlier post I made in this thread, there was an additive added to mine when I had the fluid changed that eliminated the chirp. The transmission has been serviced two more times since with just regular fluid(by the dealer) and the noise has not returned.

jpb116 I am experiencing it on my 2014 Mega and found this thread. WOW, here I thought I was nuts when I heard it. I have to say misery loves company and at least I know I'm not alone. After reading many pages of posts I think I've concluded hat Ram has no idea what its doing OR if they do know, the actual fix and followup service bulletins would cost them millions if they recalled these things. It doesn't sound like vehicles actually fail do to it so they are going to wait it out until a new tranny has replaced all these in future trucks.

Did ANYBODY actually come away with a service call that resulted in a lasting fix????

What recall was that?

Thx!

I don't think it's a problem. If I perform clutch fill calibrations on a Caterpillar machine, you would swear the thing is coming apart for all the noise, chirp, what ever the sounds that are made when the clutches come on.
