|xcoaste||UPDATE: After 2 trips to the dealer it is fixed! Turns out my issue was too much slack in the cable that goes from the shifter to the t-case. They moved the bracket about 1/4" forward to reduce the slack. Problem fixed.|

|xcoaste||Just ripped the plastic off to investigate some more. It is not the cable. When I push the t-case shifter up and to the right it stops. This leads me to think that it something with how the mechanism is put together. I get a lot of play moving the shifter side to side but can't find anyway to tighten anything.|

|xcoaste||I have been searching for a fix for a while now. I have what everybody is describing! I also have been stretching the console netting around the t-case shifter, and it stops. My guess is the cable is causing the issue...|

|Jekyll||I have had this issue and I wanted to know if any of you found a fix or talked to the dealer about a fix? It is driving me crazy.|

|ARKTCT||I have the same thing, 6-speed, at higher rpm's. All I have to do is touch the x-fer knob and it stops. Never looked for a solution, but I use it as my "rpms are high and I'm not in the green zone on the tach" for gas mileage....haha...dde1c(roll eyes)!!! If a solution to the noise is found I'd love to know!|

I will take a look at the plastic chrome piece on top to see if it is loose.
Has anyone taken the knob off when replacing it? How do you take it off? Worst case scenario I will just take it off and see if it goes away.

If I dont find a solution for this, I'm going to run knobless. Or just put the knob whenever I need to use the tcase because its annoying.

|DaleT||Have 2013 Rubicon Unlimited with 6-speed that does the same exact thing. Apply a little forward pressure on the x-fer case shifter and it stops. Right now I have stretched the netting that's on the console directly in front of the shifter over the knob and that stops the rattle until I can get around to figure out a better solution.|

|JKjingle||I might have an idea of what it is. My shifter was rattling at certain rpms and when I would squeeze the knob or push on it, it would go away. Couldn't figure it out. Just last week I was driving shift gears and the chrome trim piece pops off the shifter. Upon further inspection I noticed it has 3 clips and 2 had broken off. The shifter still rattles so I can only assume the broken plastic is rattling around inside the knob. I can take pics if you want I'm bringing it in to the dealer on Wednesday. The TC shifter has that same chrome trim piece so maybe yours is broken. You could try pulling on it if 2 clips are broken it'll probably come right off. If it's 1 clip it might stay put.|

|hair2831||Mine doesn't do that but it would annoy me to death if it did. I can't stand rattles! I had a rattle underneath the Jeep for months that I finally figured out was loose shock mount bolts. I was so happy when I found that. LOL!|

I am bringing back this old thread because I wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing or have experienced a slight rattle in the transfer case shift level. I get it when I am accelerating sometimes and if I apply slight pressure on the knob it stops. So get this...
I went to the dealership today to get an oil change and tire rotation and figured I would ask them about it. I spoke to the foreman and he said that he hasn't heard of that happening. We went for a ride so he could hear it and of course it wasn't doing it and I couldn't make it rattle!!!! I told him I didn't want to take too much of his time and next time I come in for an oil change maybe we could try it again. I then told him the truth was I am lonely and just wanted to go for a ride with someone. I think he thought I was serious hahaha.
Then I am literally driving to the highway on ramp after pulling out from the dealership and it starts doing it again!! I was like really jeep?!?! I guess I will try again next time I am there and thought it was a funny story.

|Miser||My 2013 Rubicon does not do what you are describing!|

|Lusus_Naturae||My 2013 doesn't do this, but my TJ did after a lift. I would take it in for a check if it's stock, otherwise you may want to just check it out first - I'm not sure how a lift might even affect the JK's. In the TJ it was a bracket adjustment and a piece of hose around the lower shifter to keep it from rubbing the metal.|

My 13 Rubicon does not do this.
Maybe take it to a dealer and get it looked at or tightened up?

I get the exact same rattle. It's driving me crazy.
I move the lever around until it stops, but I wish it would never start.

Is this normal? Transfer case shift lever
It might be nitpicking, but when I am accelerating and get to a certain rpm I hear a very slight rattling coming from the transfer case shift lever. If I apply upward pressure to the lever when accelerating I don't get the rattling.
Is this normal, or could something be a little loose? It honestly annoys the crap out of me
