Sounds like the vehicle weight against the Parking Pawl in the trans.... Try setting your parking BRAKE first before putting it in PARK... "BH"

Shouldn't b a problem yet. But I would be sure to set the brake first, then shift to park. Mine did it at first too. But I have since tightened the parking brake. FYI, you need to take off the wheel, rotor to access the adjuster. I recommend having the dealer do it.

My wife has had two Acura MDX's which do the same thing. Everyone else is spot on except I put the parking brake on, shift to neutral and let the weight of the car shift from the transmission to the parking brake, then I put in park. My Ram does it too if its steep enough. Ill do this when my new Rubicon comes in. I think its just the norm these days with the tight tolerences of modern transmissions.

Your punctuation leaves a little room for error; but it sounds to me like you are still moving when you put it in park?? If so; STOP first, then put in park, then I bet your problem will go away.

2015 Sahara... Looks like this is an old post but at 10k miles I am noticing the same thing on my 2015 Sahara. If the road is a bit downhill, I come to a complete stop then put it in park. Then I release the brake, It does a slight roll (as all cars would) and that's when you hear the click at the gearbox (automatic). For 10k miles I've never heard this, it just started. I see allot of people saying to put the parking brake on or put parking brake first, then release brake etc... Of course it wont make the "click" if you don't let it roll but technically you shouldn't have to do all that. Did you guys get any resolution on this? Should I be worried about it?

At least my "owl" sound in trans has magically disappeared but now this

Apply the parking brake when you park, especially if you're parking on an incline. You're adding stress on the transmission if you park on a grade and don't set the park brake.

That clunk or click sound is probably your parking pawl in the transmission locking into position. It isn't exactly something you should rely on to hold your vehicle in place. The parking pawl is essentially just a small lever that locks into a gear to stop the transmission from moving. If you have to park on any sort of slope I recommend applying the parking brake before you put your transmission in park.

This is good to know. I drive a manual now, but good for future reference in case I go back to auto!

Jeeps are OK, it's the kittens. That's why you take the doors and/or top off, so the kitten won't be held captive in the Jeep
