Rear door/window clicking

Lately I have been hearing a clicking noise; almost like the sound of the power window motor makes when attempting to roll an already shut window close- a small click- when going over bumps or taking off from a stop.

Anyone else have this issue? I know in a car that sounds can bounce around and be difficult to pinpoint but just wondered if anyone else experienced this before I went to the dealer and have them look at this.

Where are you hearing this on the car? I occasionally hear a click here or there, but can't reproduce on demand. Can you reproduce on demand? If so, then try recording with your phone. There were reports around here about a loose bushing, nut, or something on the axle of some Volts.
My dealer, Ted Britt Chevy in Sterling, VA, fixed the issue I was having, but I'm not sure it's the same as that reported by others in this thread. For me, the driver's door panel was a little loose, right where you'd rest your arm out the window. I demonstrated to them that it had more play than the other side, and that it made obnoxious clicking noises. Their tech reproduced, and they ordered a replacement panel under warranty! Sound is now gone.
Snorth funny story we go to ted britt in sterling as well. They told me they never had anyone complain about clicking before, I'll chalk that up to volume, maybe.

Either way update from GM executive customer service, per the dealer driving two other 17 volts and hearing clicking from those, they "GM" has deemed this behavior "operating characteristic of this year and model" aka tough luck. Funny our last one never clicked, ive never owned a car that randomly clicks as you drive. At this point if you have this issue, please report it to your dealer as this is a cop out for them to figure out what part is causing the issue. It seems more and more car companies due this until something breaks and they have no choice to fix it.
Well, again, our issues may be different, since mine was from the driver door panel, and not the rear.
