Has anyone here with any model jeep wrangler have a history of a rattling noise coming from the transmission poss. that stops when u touch the clutch pedal?? Ive read threads on this issue and seen that it occurs randomly across many year models. Ive had a new throw out bearing and pilot bearing put in under warranty at dealer got it back it was louder than ever. So ive taken it back. The mech is saying I need a new clutch that there is too much end play between the clutch and the bearings i guess? weeellll this crap started at less than 30,000 miles. I doubt if the clutch was worn then lilke it maybe now at 50+ thousand. I've never had any clutch symptoms like slipping, or not shifting of loss of pedal. so i dont believe a properly designed trans. needs to keep a fat clutch just to make the damn bearings or what ever not rattle. Not to mention the freaking clutch costs 300. and the two bearings they say they need to replace cost 22.!!
Im not and can not pay that and all I want is the noise fixed!!has anyone else had this problem and had it successfully fixed? because ive also read where people had it repaired and it just came back. Also when the clutch pedal is pushed in and also when it comes back up it makes a loud creaking noise that is audible both inside and outside of the vehicle. any ideas??? Thank u
kind of like this? I took my jeep to the dealership several times and was told there wasnt any problems and that it was normal. IThis wasn't a light rattle. I could easily here it when in a drive thru or parked. It would go away if i pressed in the clutch or rested my hand on the gear shifter.

Exactly the noise mine makes at ilde, i thought it was the head at first but when i push the clutch in and rev it, its dead quite. I hear its normal for these ****boxes of a transmission. Im taking mine in soon to see what they say about it. Other than that its not no noise driving and shifts fine most of the time lol, sometimes 3rd and 5th scratch a little. Nature of the beast i guess, 32k and no break downs yet.
I do not believe for one min. This racket is normal! It sounds like a washing machine full of nuts and bolts. Yes very similar to the you tube video here only its not as muffled. Its more metallic. Its ridiculous. And so far ive taken it to two different jeep dealers and both say its the throw out bearing. I wish i had 300$ for a clutch to prove them wrong. But at least i havent gotten a "oh thats normal" bs yet. Im probably going to call corp. line. Its bs. Thanks guys.
I argued for days with them over this finally said fudge it. It's bound to eff up before the warranty expires. Then, I'll,well my dad since he currently owns that jeep tell them : nana-nana, boo-boo, stick your head in doo-doo
Unfortunantly dont let them tell u its covered under drive train warranty. Cause i was told that. 5yr or 50,000. Not. Its covered under the original 3 yr 30,000. But they are still covering it under a good will warranty cause of the misinfo. Regardless they are trying to say its the throw out bearing. They replaced it. Still rattles. Now they trying to say the clutch is so worn that theres too much play between the parts. Cough BS! Well. Id buy into that if the noise had just started. I have 53,000 on it. But the noise started back when it was only 21,000 or so. So now theyre trying to force me to pay 300$ for a damn clutch i dont need. Claiming the noise will then stop. Well f them. Im going to get an after market clutch kit put in for less and i bet that will stop it. Mopar parts and chrysler design is the damn problem. Thy both suck. And this is my 2nd wrangler w stupid design problems. Like a 98 4 cyl. With a managold that constantly sheared the manifold bolt off inside the block and ran around w a loud exhaust leak. No fix. Nature of that manifold. Yeah nature of mopar.
The 300 is for the part only. But the clutch isnt slipping or anything. The labor is covered under the warranty for the throw out bearing problem. I say its not the clutch because the noise has been around since before clutch had hardly any wear. So my issue is i throw 300$ at this problem needlessly. Im out the $ whether it stops the noise or not if i do that.
