Initial LCLS-II cryomodule testing at Fermilab showed microphonics on the furthest upstream cavity (number 1) at least factor 2 larger than on the rest of the cavities. Testing indicated that this was a difference in the mechanical support of cavity 1, not a local acoustic source. Further investigation pointed to the upstream beam-pipe of the cavity 1. The upstream cavity flange has a solid spool piece connection to the beamline gate valve unlike the other cavities, which all connect through

The tuner design was modified to transform interface between cavity#1 and gate valve. Arms of the tuner for cavity 1 were extended and became the support structure for gate valve, eliminating the connection to the helium return pipe. Modification of the tuner design and results in microphonics mitigations will be presented.
