I think this has been covered but I cant find it. The truck has a whistle noise coming from underneath. Has anyone figured it out? Thanks in advance

Update the squealing noise was the brake clamps that gove you a warning when they are low were installed backwards. The dealer is now goin through my truck from head to toe (mechanics inspection per director) to make sure everything else that has been me tioned on this forum is looked at and addressed.

Whatever those clamps are that let you know when the pads get low they squeal or whistle. They were put on backwards so thats all they were doing was whistling and it ruined them.

Im having a hard time visualizing how the wear indicator could be backwards and be in contact with anything.
The only way I can see it touching is if the brake pad was backwards.

I agree. Seems like it had to be brakepad.

Brake Wear Indicator .... It's on the list (attached)

DONE!
@KnightMare Can this list be added to the excel spread sheet in a tab? Just cause sadly @scottn may be adding things as we go so the attachment in the post could get old. Thanks @scottn for putting together this list.

Just unreal man. This is unacceptable. $15K Hyundai's and Kia's are screwed together better than the TRX.....Once again, no other auto manufacturer on the planet that I can think of designs such beautiful and award-winning products and then totally flubs the follow up. I am going to pray hard for the 2022 Grand Cherokee and Grand Wagoneer.
100% agree. Kia has had better launches then this with better build quality and QA on 20k cars. Way too many loose bolts, loose parts and other issues stacking up. The last 5 cars I have had were all launch years and this is sets the bar pretty low. And I would kind of be ok with these issues if Ram simply put out a TSB to inspect all these items at the dealer but nope.....no ownership or accountability or responsibility from Ram so far.

Hell we can all agree foreign companies have way better paint quality. 30k Kia got more flake in the paint then a 90k TRX
