Does it sound like a playing card in the wheel of a bicycle? If so I had the same noise.. Took mine to dealer and they couldn't reproduce.. The noise went away after about a month and never returned.

Did this resolve your issue?

That sounds a lot like the rotational clicking that I have as well. Mine seems to be coming from the front left of the vehicle, heard best with the window down inside parking garages (where you can hear echoes off the walls, but happens outside too), and corresponds to speed of the vehicle - the clicking sound happens slower when I'm at slower speeds, and the sounds speeds up at faster speed. It pretty much sounds like a stone in the tire, but it is not.

I've had it to the dealer a couple times and they can't figure it out. Kind of frustrating for only having 1500 miles on it.

It is just once when speed up or down at about 10mpr. Like an electric switch is turn on or off.

I have the same clicking noise , I can only hear it when I'm outside the car engine started car in park and not every time ...comes and goes . So I don't think its related to the tranny . Seems like its a rotational sound but it's weird cos its like 3..4 second apart . Could be compressor making strange adjustments . Car works perfectly otherwise so if she wants to click I guess its fine .

I have this same issue on my '14 JGC Overland. It's definitely rotational clicking. It was initially very faint (when my Jeep was still <300mi young) and I could just ignore it. Over time though, the sound has increased and is now annoying and causes concern.

More detailed description (skip if not interested): Clicking sound. Clicks get faster as vehicle speeds up. Sound disappears on corresponding wheel when steering is rotated fully towards left or right. Clicking is continuous as long as vehicle is in motion (so not only during shifting gears). Sound is far more audible with the windows down and beside a wall or in a garage (to reflect sound).

My 'research' points to the following possibilities (in order of likelihood):
1. The cotter pin on each of the front wheels
2. A spring from the brake assembly catching the rim
3. Some foreign object caught within the assembly
4. etc (more guesses go here )

I am currently >50 mi from my dealer so I'll have to live with the sound for at least another week But if any of you guys confirm and resolve this issue, please ping me.

Thanks and good luck.

Re: Clicking sound

I thought it might be something to do with the break caliper. In any event, I mentioned it to my dealer, but the dealer couldn't reproduce. To his defense, the clicking is t always there, and is more common after long drives. I'm seeing a lot of people have this issue. I'm also guessing its more common but people don't hear it. I only heard because I live in a building with an underground garage, that I have to drive through. Otherwise I never would have heard.
So let it be for now.

Re: Clicking sound

Guys, it clicks even when not moving. I was walking past a GC today stopped at a red light and it was clicking. Mine clicks as well just idling in my driveway. I believe it's normal.

Re: Clicking sound

Since my last post, I have been out of town and not driving mine much. So my issue is still unresolved.

I posted a short video on a separate post that I started demonstrating my speed dependent rotational sound.

Clicking noise - watch this video - any ideas?

I plan to get to a dealer this Saturday to have the rim looked at, which was suggested as a possibility by another poster.

Re: Clicking sound

I have this same sound on mine. It is not playing cards or anything like that. It makes a single metallic click that is readily audible at low speeds with the windows down. I originally thought it coincided with the transmission shifting, however I found that if I use the paddles to put it in first, it makes the tick at around 5mph anyway, even if I don't let it shift to 2nd. My best guess was the transfer case. It certainly doesn't sound like it is coming from the front end or any kind of suspension. To me, it doesn't sound necessarily nefarious, but with the transmission issues on some of the '14s it would be interesting to see if newer builds are making that noise, or if there is a difference between the v6 and v8.

Re: Clicking sound

At this point, I think it is safe to say there are two different issues being confused here. One seems rotational, always clicking, with consistency varying with vehicle speed and seeming to come from the front tires. The other is a single metallic sound (or at least very few times) and seems to come from the transfer case and is independent of vehicle speed.
I also think it's necessary to distinguish these so that solutions to both can be reached faster and we can all avoid going back and forth about who has the correct description..
