42RLE/Transfer Case - 'Plink'ing noise - Help!

Hi Guys, back again....

A while back, my 2010 JKU started making a loud 'plink' sound (not sure how to describe - cross between a clunk and a taught wire being twanged) when shifting between Reverse and Drive.

It also does it when coming to a stop, or taking off form a stop.

Living on my own, I can't get under it to hear exactly where it's coming from (can't shift it - my arms aren't long enough!), so wondering if anyone has had a similar issue?

After it started, I did a transmission fluid and filter change (just a pan drop, not a power flush), but didn't make a difference.

No chance of getting a replacement for either the transmission or Transfer case on this rock, and shipping either in will cost me about 3 times what I pay in the US, so trying to avoid if possible.

Any help, thoughts or suggestions would be gratefully received!

Ben
