G4 Tower: Squeaking or Clicking?

Recommended Posts

P6Expert

I am starting this thread because this topic became a rabbit hole in another tread dealing with 2019 Model Year changes.  So, and for the record, my G4 tower tends to squeak when I hit choppy water.  I have heard from others that their G4 tower clicks when out on the water.  I have posted the following Service Advisory "SA No - MY16.Adv01.JUL08 - G4 Tower Noise" to my box.com site (below) and am curious to know if this SA also fixes the clicking sounds others have heard.  So, I would like to know of those out there with clicking sounds, what remedy have you used to fix this issue?  Also, does the SA fix the squeaking sound?

I torqued those 8 bolts to 50 lb-ft each.  I ran out of loc-tite mid-project so,only 4 of the bolts got it.  They were all torqued to significantly less than 50 lb-ft, but none were "loose."  Only time will tell whether that was the source of my clicking noises--though I'm pretty certain it was coming from the tower.  The clicking noises were only occasional for me so it will be a few weeks before I will be willing to declare victory.
