6.7 typewriter noise!!!!

I've had my 11 for 7 month's and 25k miles and have loved every minute of it... In the last month or so I've noticed a tapping noise coming from between the passenger side front fender well an say the bell housing area. I took it to my dealer this morning and I had'nt gotten back on the interstate good and the service manager calls me and say's "let me read you somthing" He reads from his service manual basically my exact symptom and it planly reads that they are not to go after the problem it is just part of the 6.7 and that some do it, some dont, it mostly is current with the engine at temp and recently after an oil change. This being said has anyone else noticed this sound?

Mine does it as well but I thought it was on the drivers side only seem to do it when the engine is warm it does seem to be worse now that summer is sitting in.

From what you are describing, it sounds like the noise heard on many 6.4's after an oil change. My 6.4 started making this noise after the second oil change.

Dude you got a 30 min oil change... Thats like winning the lottery in my book!

All kidding aside I have noticed mine is the worst after an oil change at times it is very noticable and sometimes you cant hear it at all.
