Clunking noise in Dash
Every once in a while when I hit the brakes I hear a "Clunk" in the upper passenger side of the dash. Like a heater door is loose or something. Only happens on hot days, AC on auto. And not all the time.
2013 Laredo X with auto climate control.

Any thoughts?

So nobody else has ever heard a noise like that?

Just a stab in the dark, but is something rolling around in your glovebox?

Nope, first thing I checked, even pulled the owners manual off it's little shelf, cleaned out the door pockets, cleaned everything I could think of.

Maybe it's time for a trip to the dealer service dept. The only clunk I've heard in my '14 turned out to be an umbrella bouncing back and forth in the cargo storage pocket. Good luck, and I hope you find it.

I was hearing a clunk also. Turned out to be my sunglasses in the upper holder.

Nope, nothing in there, when it happens it's coming from the passenger side upper dash. Sounds like a heater door flap or something. When I get a chance I'll dig into it deeper. Doesn't happen very often. Still love my Jeep.:thumbsup:

I think I found it
So today I was checking out the cabin air filter and trying to see if anything obvious was loose in that side of the dash. Well I found the little cable that dampens the glove box when opening was disconnected and just hanging loose. So hopefully that was it.
