Re: Annoying Rattle

I had this TSB completed a couple of weeks ago and the clunking is no longer heard.

Did you hear the clunking and take your Jeep in or was your dealership proactive and contacted you about the service bulletin???

I had heard the clunk once and a while but it wasn't bad. I actually had the jeep in to have the driver side mirror replaced as it was blurry. It was a day after the TSB was provided so I mentioned it and they performed it at the same time as fixing the mirror.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Went to the dealer and had the update done. It seems better but not perfect. In general the noise isn't as common but still happens at speeds under 25mph.

Re: Annoying Rattle

I too have noticed same thing. Rear end suspension thumping sound over bumps. How do you know if the car was made before 2/17? My car was built and ready for inspection on 2/18 so I am on the cusp.

Re: Annoying Rattle

So, I checked my build sheet and my car war built on the 2/17. I do hear the rattle so I will look into the sw update from my dealer, not being certain whether my car was before or after the manufacture update. Anyone else have a 2/17 car with same symptoms?

Re: Annoying Rattle

Just got my clunk problem reduced with the TSB ECM flash as posted here. Thanks for the heads-up cyanideg on that TSB you linked us to.
FYI, my Jeep was built 10/4/11
The dealer was very helpful to look into the TSB and actually said they would do the ECM flash when I brought the truck in. If I wasn't happy, they would look for more possibilities. After they completed it, I took it through some speed bumps and driveway ramps.
After a few minutes, it seemed to clunk less that before. I returned to the dealer and said it felt better. I told them if it gets worse, I'll call them again.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Starting to hear a clunk again....not as bad as originally but noticeable. I will be calling the dealership on Monday to explore options.

I would say if you hear it and it doesn't sound normal forget when your car was built and bring it in....get it fixed.
