I wanted to share my experience that i've had since i bought my jeep in 2013. I've had a really annoying rattle noise that was coming from what i thought was the tranny, right under the manual shifter. I took it to the dealer multiple times, they even dropped the tranny to see whats going on. Every time, they couldn't figure it out or just told me they fixed it (but never really did). The other day i just couldn't take it anymore and decided to take apart the center console to see if there was a cable or something that was making the rattle noise. It turns out, there as a 10mm nut missing where it should be holding down the shifter boot. A quick trip to home depot and $1.29 later, the problem is now 100% solved. I can't believe that was the problem and the dealer couldn't figure it out. I didn't take a picture of it, but i took someone else's picture and circled in red where the nut was missing.
