Clicking noise

I am getting a clicking noise from under the drivers seat, it seems to only happen over road bumps. I can bounce in the chair though and it doesn't happen. I have also heard it from rear of passenger seat anyone else had a similar noise?

Re: Clicking noise

I had a clicking noise for some reason, I just adjusted the position slightly and it went away.

I've got a tick that comes from the cargo area. Seems to happen more when not moving..

Re: Clicking noise

Iv got the exact same issue for the passenger seat. Can't replicate when vehicle is stationary. Mentioned this to the service guy this morning for the 20k service and he called earlier saying they found a loose bolt. Am about to pick it up and will check if it's actually fixed so hopefully that does the trick!

Re: Clicking noise

Alright so the constant clicking at every bump and depression in the road is now gone. Seat is much more solid now.
Dealer said one of the screws at the base mount wasn't torqued to spec which they fixed.
However, I did notice a couple of clicks still on the 20 Min return trip that seemed to occur if I shift weight on the straight, not during a bump. Not sure if this is another part of the seat or what but will monitor. Definitely an improvement though!

I have the same from in front of the drivers seat area but haven't been able to find where its from, sounds like its from around the accelerator pedal area.....

Re: Clicking noise

I have the same issue as seedar. Did you ever get that identified? Seems to happen intermittently over bumps in the road.

Re: Clicking noise

The ABS / Stability system will click as it is priming the ABS pump. Comes from under the dash on the drivers side. This may be what you are hearing. It should disappear after a few seconds, each time the car is started.

Re: Clicking noise

Thank you for this Enforcer. Unfortunately my noise continues no Matter how long you drive the car. It is intermittent seems to happen over bumps. I have a feeling it is related to the speaker wiring as it is almost like a static noise and seems to come from the lower speaker. I will keep investigating. I will disconnect the speakers in the weekend and see what happens. Cheers

Re: Clicking noise

Any of you guys look for loose debris in the electronics cubby under the seat, or in the battery compartment? When I first got my 2011 Limited (used) there was all kinds of racket, found about three dollars in loose change under there.

Re: Clicking noise

ive had this issue for about 20,000km, service guys have looked at it twice, the second time they 'fixed some loose panels' and it settled down, used to be really annoying, its under the drivers seat and generally if you press down on front right edge you can sort of replicate it, i explain it as a solenoid sort of click. next time they said it will have to be referred to jeep
