Clicking noise speed changes
 
I have noticed a faint clicking noise during speed changes, sounds like it is coming from driver floor board. I am not sure if the is a normal noise or not, something to do with the drive system? Would y'all bring it in for this?

Does it sound like a playing card slapping the spokes of your old huffy? I hear it too, loudest at around 25mph.

No, I have the V6, still not sure I should bring it in to complain about this as it appears its just a "Jeep" noise we are going to have to get used to.

If it sounds minor (and it does), I would wait until the next service to mention it. If it's driving you nuts, go now.

Just picked up my Dark Charcoal Hemi this past Friday and noticed this same sound a few times. Seems to be most prevalent around 25-30 MPH. FWIW, I have Quadra-Lift and Quadra-Drive II with the 20" wheels.

I was just browsing over at wk2jeeps.com and saw the following info at the bottom of the page that shows the TSB's.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Clicking Noise
The driver may notice a clicking sound coming from the front or underneath the vehicle. This occurs when the vehicle is traveling above 35 mph and during the first portion of a drive cycle. The ESC system will run a calibration routine and if the driver lifts off of the gas pedal, the ESC system will stop the test because the drive may need to brake. The clicking sound is the valves in the ESC system. Once the calibration routine is successful, the noise will not return until the next ignition cycle. Once the ESC system has learned 50 times, the calibration will not be run during every ignition cycle. The sound may also become less noticeable over time. This sound is normal and no service needs to be done.

Do you all suppose this is related to the "playing card" noise we're hearing? Has anyone with the noise noticed that it occurs less often after owning the vehicle for a while, or is it just as common?

Thanks,
Mike

It's situations like this that makes this forum so valuable. Great question and great resolution.

Could also be the AC unit fan... Ours makes a ticking sound that almost sounds like a faint exhaust leak... Its not that bad but you can hear it... its driving my wife crazy. We are going to have them take a look at it and hopefully silence the sound.
