Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Silverado LS 5.3L

Common air leaks on these trucks - easily caused and easily fixed. Chances are your weather stripping as slipped or has shrunk due to exposure (age) or your doors are bent allowing air in. After my first lock out experience with this truck i had the same issue with air leaks until i discovered what it was: door frame bent when it was wedged to get the door unlocked, and just recently because i need new door hinge pins.

Any body shop/skilled mechanic can perform the "adjustment" and install the upgraded OEM hinge pins or you can do it at home if you are careful.

What happens is you need to bend the window frame back towards to cab, if that is where you hear the air rushing in. If you cant figure out how to safely do it, take it to someone who can - you can screw things up otherwise. If its the bottom seal, that means you are going to have to flex the bottom of the door AND the top of the door.

If its your third door on the extended cab model, there is a series of seals you need to check and make sure they aren't torn where the doors come together and you may also have to adjust the third door latches (this is a pain in the butt)

I hear air leaking in my door-ways also. It is quieter to roll down the window when I'm driving but instead I blast the radio.

I have had numerous problems with this truck. But the dealership has fixed most of them except, the air leaks. This dang thing has had air leaks since I owned her. The passenger door has a leak so bad it's quieter to drive with the window cracked, and the ext-cab window on the same side has noise, but that wind noise is tolerable on that window.
