ID\'ed it, now need help stopping noise



Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what that is, but the noise is coming from there. It only makes the noise when the car is on, and it does not change tone or speed or such with either rpm, speed or gear changes. So I'm stumped....please help! The car seems perfectly normal except for the rather loud frap, frap, frap noise that it is making....


BTW, this is up in the driver side fenderwell. Right in front of the wheel. I took the tire off and everything.

Re: What is this, and why would it make weird noises?

FIGURED IT OUT
Its the DSI motor or controller or something of that nature. Damnit...now I have to try and get this passed off through warranty....


Or is there a way to fix it myself?

It's the dual stage intake lever thingy? You have an SVT? It's a well known problem, check the SVT forum and I think maybe the group buy forum. There was a huge thread called "DSI Metal Clip" in one of those, print out all the people who had theirs break, it might even be a TSB or recall by now.
