REALLY annoying rattle in steering column
 
I first started noticing a subtle rattle in the steering column a few thousand miles back when riding over rough roads... and had it checked, but dealership couldnt even replicate the rattle.

Since then, however (at 8,000 miles), it got substantially and continually worse, rattling almost constantly and over every little bump in the road. It sounds like a small BB rattling around in the steering wheel.

It's some piece in the steering column they're goign to replace that "should" fix the problem. We'll see... anyone else have a similar issue?

I take it that this is a problem unique to mine... great.

I actually had this start at about 1000 miles. Took it to my dealer and my assigned mechanic (real thorough guy) found a loose steering column gasket. Part is ordered and am awaiting install

Sounds like my problem too. Please post the results after the replacement. Please give the dealer's name so that I can refer my jeep mechanic to yours. Thanks, Maggie

I had it too, they replaced the steering column module which contains some electronics and also the clockspring among other mechanical parts. It solved the problem.

I had this problem too. My dealer said it is an unused bracket on the side of the steering column. It was barely finger tight. They moved the bracket little and tightened it up. So far rattle is gone.

Did the sound from the loose bracket sound anything like the sound in this video? Several of us with the New 2014's are hearing this.

Just an FYI. This is the same rattle. Took it to the dealer and had them check for the bracket and sure enough, removing it fixed the noise. There is now a Chrysler Star case for it: S132300022
