clicking noise

I have a 2010 WK with the hemi and QTII. It has 55k miles on it currently. I am getting a rotational clicking noise that only occurs when coasting around 20-30mph. It goes away when my speed gets below 20mph and does not change when braking or turning. It does however go away immediately if I put the transmission into nuetral while its making the noise. Anyone have any clue on what to check? Thanks!

Re: clicking noise

I'm also getting a clicking noise, seems to be around the rear passenger side. Only when i'm between 5-10 mph. My mechanic has no clue what it is. I have a 2005 3.7L.

Re: clicking noise

Broken/loose e-brake assembly maybe?

x2.

The e-brake shoes can fall apart and rattle around in the drum...took me a good couple of weeks to track that one down...

Re: clicking noise

If that's the case, is that expensive to fix?

Re: clicking noise

As far as my noise though it goes away when the transmission is put into nuetral, I wouldnt think that would happen if it was the ebrake making noise.

Yes, this is likely not the cause of your noise - also the speed range doesn't really fit with the ebrake hypothesis.

I would check the drive u-joints at the end of the drive shafts to see if there is any play in them...not sure why they would vary with the transmission in gear vs. out of gear, but who knows...

Have you tried coasting in neutral with the vehicle shut off, to get a better listen as to where the sound is coming from (remember, if doing this there is no power steering or power braking so it's something that you want to try in an empty lot or deserted road).

Your best bet may be to get it on a lift and try to replicate the noise. There are so many things that can make a clicking noise related to vehicle it'll be tough to narrow it down while it is on the ground and driving.

Re: clicking noise

I've tried all situations I can think of. It won't make the noise with the transmission in neutral no matter what the speed. I plan on getting it on a lift in the next couple of days. I'll report back what I find!

Re: clicking noise

I put the jeep on a lift today and found nothing suspicious. Everything is tight with no excessive play in any suspension component or the driveshafts/axle shafts and ebrake shoes are in tact. Any other ideas?
