Jeep at Dealership all day. Litterally got nowhere

Issue #1: when i turn the knob to get air blowing out of the top and bottom vents, I can barely feel any air coming out of the bottom vents. If I turn it to bottom only, it comes out great. But not when top/bottom selected. Dealer says I had a piece of paper almost in the vent. I thought "ok,makes sense". but when i picked it up nothing had changed. I couldnt talk to them about it because service department had already left.

Issue #2:

finally got the vid on. Make sure volume is up. Noise goes away briefly when I engaged clutch. Returns when I let out.

If that is normal..... I guess I need to take my 08 back in and have my clutch fixed! Mine doesn't make any noise !

I'd go to another dealer, if that doesn't help, I'd go straight to Chrysler. That is not normal.

That's not normal in any way, shape, or form.

my 12' 6 speed sounds almost no different from engaged to disengaged. That sound is not normal.

I can't really tell what I'm hearing there..... but I definitely hear a difference between engaged and disengaged. My 2005 six-speed has a definite rattle when in neutral and the clutch pedal is released. I've understood it to be normal on mine, not sure if the new ones are any different.

My TJ made that noise...and it was fairly normal My '12 JKUR...not so much. Go to Ringgold or Chattanooga (assuming Chatt's not the same guys...).

As a fellow Dozer owner...love the blacked out accessories.

Took jeep back to the dealership to so they could try to diagnose this. I got a call around 3 pm that It was fine. Over the phone the service department manager assured me this was normal. He claimed they had 13's that made the same sounds just not as loud. he also claimed that 12's with more miles made the noise but much louder. They claimed to have called jeep engineers and they said the jeep is fine. some interesting info is that they informed me that if I pushed my shifter up or down about a half inch it would stop. Sure enough, it did as if i was pressing in my clutch.Syncronizers maybe?

Its quite nerve racking that im going to have to constantly keep pressure on my shifter just so i doesnt sound like my transmission is falling apart inside. Going to call different dealership in the morning as well as call Jeep. If the noise will get much louder with more miles,and it's normal,i will be looking into trading for an Automatic.

What does the linkage look like? Does the shifter physically go into the transmission from above? Everything I've had (even RWD) has been linkage down the side of the housing, not directly into it.

pressing in the clutch stops the noise also. Could it still be a linkage problem?

Sorry, that was actually just me being curious, my JK is an auto.

I can't think of anything in common between the clutch system and the shifter that could cause this. Maybe there's a vibration in the input shaft/pressure plate/bearings that's making the linkage squeak...I'm really reaching here. But if the shifter doesn't go directly into the transmission case I really can't explain how pushing on it does anything.

I had the NV3550 5Sp in my TJ and it was louder than that once it warmed up. It would literally sound like rocks being shaken in a tin can. I have forgot what caused it, been a while, but it was normal for that tranny.

If you think about a manual transmission mechanically, different things are happening when clutch is in versus released, so therefore it's obviously going to sound different.

My 2012 6 speed sounds the same, and I believe it to be normal.

The 2012 6 speed that I test drove before I bought mine sounded the same as well.

The previous TJ's I've had also sounded this way.

So did my YJ.

Start the engine, tranny in neutral, clutch out, and turn your AC on(so the compressor runs).
That noise get's louder, doesn't it?
Normal.

Start the engine, tranny in neutral, clutch out, push up on shifter and it stops(yes, I know you covered this already...just follow me). Normal.
Start the engine, tranny in neutral, clutch out, BE IN LOW RANGE, push up on shifter and your Jeep will creep forward. Normal.

It's normal. Every one does it.
If you say yours doesn't, come to Columbus Ohio and let me listen.
If it doesn't do it, I'll pay your Jeep off.
