demarpaint I'm in Valley Stream. Sounds like your wife did a great job. Hopefully things work out for you, good luck!

Not afraid to turn a wrench but electrical issues scare the crap out of me

Got the jeep from Westbury Dealer. Honestly my wife did all the leg work and surprised me with this jeep so the little that I had to deal with the dealer was a good experience. Shes a tough cookie and did her homework and got the best deal from westbury, even picked out the 6spd and white, two things I would have chose had she asked me. Not bad huh?

What town are you in?

ESP Service departments will always desire to work on your vehicle and get paid for it under warranty or not because they make the same money off of you or Chrysler for the parts/labor. It's simple economics. However they do have to get approval to warrant the work and this where you'll run into some grey area when attempting to fix parts under warranty.

demarpaint They'll try and avoid fixing it, under warranty. However if the warranty was up and you were footing they bill they'd tell you there was something wrong. Warranty work doesn't pay as well as retail shop work does, so they sometimes pick and choose what they want to do. Pulling a tranny under warranty isn't one of the easier more profitable jobs especially for a busy dealership, they tend to go to the higher paying more profitable jobs if possible. OTOH if the rep tells them to drop the tranny and do the job, they have to.

Keep in mind some clutch chatter is considered normal, and might not occur all the time, now if the rear main seal were leaking and it was obvious it would be cut and dry. Check for oil leaks, you never know. Last thoughts, chatter and TOB noise are two totally different animals. Some MTs make a roll over noise, that is considered normal too. Good luck!

Yep. Both my Tj and Jk do it.

I even have a squeak to go along with it

I hear the opposite as far as warranty work

j0nx Not in my case they aren't because the know the manufacturer will not reimburse them for it for something like this if it turns out to not fix the problem. Trust me, I've been round and round with multiple manufacturer dealers over noisy clutches that act just like the OP and they always tell me clutch chatter that is within spec. I had a '10 Ford Focus that was terrible and one dealer even went as far as telling me he couldn't even hear it! When I was standing right outside the car and could hear it chattering away as loud as could be. It's worth taking in you never know. I just know I've never had any luck getting them to fix it myself.

Good point however the service department is usually happy to find warranty work on any vehicle because they can bill Chrysler and make money replacing it.

Throwout bearing noise 2012 JKU

Just noticed my throwout bearing making noise OVER the sound of my ticking cylinder head. Press the clutch in and the noise disappears. This is great, 3250 miles and this is what I get. I'm gonna have a field day with the service rep monday when I bring the jeep in.
