Rattling inside a 2013 JK wrangler
 
Hey all,


I just bought a 2013 wrangler last month and haven't really done any hard driving on it at all. Every so often when I hit about 65 to 70 on the highway I have what sounds like metal rattling inside underneath the steering column near the gas pedal / brake pedal (and no it isn't the keys in the ignition banging around) Any idea what it could be? Thanks!

Possibly a loose nut behind the wheel?

Is it loud? Might be worth mentioning to the dealer next time your in there.

Hmm, I have this as well. I got underneath the body and dash and seems everything is tight. that is odd though, let us know what you find out.

Pre-dealer troubleshooting:

try sticking your foot under the brake pedal and applying upwards pressure on the pedal (reverse of braking) while it is rattling. See if the noise stops.

There is also a known intermediate shaft rattle that has plagued the JK:

I actually tried that the other day. Sadly to no avail nothing stopped it. I'm going to be going to the dealership soon so ill post an update.

My 11 rubicon had "bad bushings" in the brake pedal. Dealer replaced bushings. Three days later same noise. I don't know what to say except I'm gonna bring it back to dealer.

Update: it ended up being a loose shield underneath the car. Dealer reset the clips and stabilized it.
