Clutch Rattle

Who has had their clutch rattle while going over rough roads since the Jeep was new?

Just checking if this is the norm, or if I ought to turn it in under warranty.

Thanks

I don't notice it when going over rough roads.
But clutch out in neutral and it sounds like a can of rocks in there.
Turn the motor off with the clutch out and in neutral and HOLY CRAP!!!!!

I've never noticed it on rough roads but there are other things squeaking and rattling then also so... But yea; like Paul, if I'm sitting in neutral with the clutch pedal in it's rest position with my foot off the pedal (so the clutch is enguaged), the tranny makes one heck of a racket. And yea, if you turn it off it sounds like mice having a shoot-out in your tranny or something... LOL

But it's fine. Done that for 60k miles and it will do that forever.

my clutch squeeks like a dog's chew toy, and i have 40k on the jeep. i don't know that i've heard the rattling over bumps, there are so many other noises going on it's hard to distinguish!
