Try it with the truck running and see if you have the same noise. It's possible that your battery is weak or failing. There was a similar post and the battery turned out to be bad.

My automatic opener/closer would moan and groan while in the closing operation, it got louder if it was hotter outside. Dealer replaced the open/close motor and and black arm thing under warranty no problems since.

Motors bad. They are made cheaply.

I can grab the top mount and it shuts-up. I can feel the noise. The temp. does seem to affect it tho....With no-load it makes no noise. Really wierd.

Mine makes the noise intermittently about 20 % of the time. Only moans on the close, not the open.
