Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

That transmission valve is also unattached in mine but that was one of the first things I secured. I connected it to another point away from the firewall. The heater lines don't cause any vibration...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

I'm at the service department now. They're not confident simply replacing the foam will stop the rattle and want me to wait and see what happens with the STAR report. They're calling someone...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

Yes, I carry a bag of zip ties, insulation foam, a flashlight, and scissors for that very purpose. I'll try to call Jeep Assist as well. I'm not seeing any acknowledgement of this problem from Jeep.

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

UPDATE:

I had to add more padding around the A/C pipe at the firewall and tighten the zip-tie to keep the rattle under control. Over time (week or two) that pipe worked itself loose inside its...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

On my KL the coolant line has about 1/4 inch free space around it as it passes through the firewall. It's not braced at all, other than some soft foam, and you can easily wobble it with your hand...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

Yes, apparently at low RPM (1100-1500) there's enough oscillation to cause tubing to rumble against the firewall. The solution we've been able to rig up is to brace the tubing against something on...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

So far a lot of us are getting dash rattles, but for different causes. Richard's was the heater pipes against the firewall. Mine was the A/C pipes against the firewall. They definitely need to...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

The service department didn't say there was, but the guy could see that the foam was in the wrong position so he ordered a new one. I'm not confident it will fix it, I think there's a design flaw. ...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

Showed it to the Jeep dealer and they reported it to STAR. They're going to replace the gasket around that A/C line.

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

I did all your steps according to your pictures but it still didn't fix mine. The rattle was as loud as ever.

However I did track it down very close to the same solution. My rattle was the Air...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

I bought zip ties and foam this morning and put foam and ties around those tubes inside. I don't see where to put ties outside, I only see one heater hose at the firewall. But it didn't affect the...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

I found this hose with a green top laying up against the heater hose and firewall. It has a clip on it, but it's not clipped to anything. I zip-tied the clip away from the heater hose, but it did...

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

So you did this both inside and outside the cabin? Can you take a cellphone photo and upload them?

Re: 2014 Trailhawk rattle

I have the same problem and it's driving me NUTS. Can you take a picture of your fix?
