Plastic sound on the passenger side ..
 
Ok so lately i have been hearing sounds like loose plastic rubbing or moving when i go over uneven road or go over a bump , usually old jeeps sound like that but all over and loud,but this one is a light sound ...anyone with 2012 Srt had that problem, because dealer do not know what that might be and is looking into it...

VIDEO LINK...

Here is a weird noise i got while driving ,sounds like some loose plastic, if anyone knows what this can be...Please let me know...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3MVVRuMqEY

This may not be related, but I would maybe start with the common known issues like with that useless steering wheel column bracket rattle issue. I can't recall if that is a TSB documented item or not. But do a search for "rattle" in the WK2 section, lots of info there.

My 2012 grand cherokee is doing same thing just started after a lot of rain? I can push on the passenger fender that meets up with the headlight and kinda make the same noise but I don't think that's it at all.


It also seems to go away slightly after a long drive.
I was thinking something needs to be greased but not if its a plastic sound right?


Let me know if you figure it out!

Check your front suspension mounting bracket, the dealer found mine has been bent up from a misplaced floor jack when I had wheels put on causing it to rub on another part. They have to order the part but it look like the problem is this. Driver side is clearly lower and not any close to touching anything. Your video is the same noise I have!
