Jeep manuel trans question.

I am new to Jeep and your forum. I bought a new 06 Wrangler Sport 6 speed, my question is when you release the clutch when taking off it makes a metal engagement sound if that makes sense, I here that sound each time I release the clutch. I don't think its the way I'm driving as it makes the same sound when my wife drives as well. Let me know if you think it might be normal, if not I will take it in to the shop. I just don't want to take it in and that be a normal sound they make. By the way its not a grinding sound just a clink/clunk.

Thanks in advance,
Terminator

Thanks for your quick response. I know there is a recall coming out on Wranglers made from November to February regarding the clutch, mine was built in March so I don't think that's the problem. I will take it in and post back what the problem is.

My '03 manual 5-speed does the exact same thing you're describing....wasn't sure if it was a problem, since it does it every time i release the clutch and doesnt sound horribly serious, but it is kinda annoying.

what ever happened with yours terminator?

Well since I last posted I also bought a 06 Rubicon. At first my Rubi did not not do it but now with 1500 miles on it I hear it some times. My wife's sport does it more than mine. We have had it back a couple of times and each time they say it is a normal sound. So with two in the house I would say it would be some what of a normal sound. Btw her's has 2000 miles on it. I am having a problem with the black check strap on the in side of the soft top, mine on the Rubi came off of one of the rivets the first day I had it, so I had them put a new top on and it has the same problem already. Nice Jeeps, but they have the check straps too tight.

I've got a 2003 Wrangler X 5 Speed and I hear that exact noise you are talking about. Judging from these other posts, it sounds like it is a normal sound.

It is a normal sound you guys are hearing. Lots of complaints about it, but there's nothing mechanically wrong with anything.

Does anyone also hear this noise when accelerating? After I shift into gear and quickly tap the gas pedal, I hear a similar whining type of noise. I only have about 2,000 miles on mine, but think this noise has gotten a bit more noticeable recently, especially when it's cooler outside. Anyone else hearing anything similar?

You know, between "funny noises" in the clutch, turn signal and lamp problems, and all the rest I keep hearing reported..... I really appreciate my rectangular headlights!

Yeah yeah, I had plenty-o-noises and quirks in my old 93 YJ 2.5L. About the same as in the 98 TJ I've got now.

I believe this noise is slop in the transfer case. I removed my wife's transfer case from her Jeep and was surprised to see that the input shaft turns about 1/4 before the output shaft starts to turn. A friend just bought a 2006 X and the first thing he asked me about was this noise when he put it into gear. I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm sure the noises are normal, we just never have noticed them. How loud it is, depends on how fast you release your clutch.
