I started hearing a clicking noise towards the end of September in my 2019 Cherokee Latitude 3.2L engine with Active Drive II at 32k miles. The noise only happens when I get back on the accelerator, like coming out of a turn in the foothills. I took it to the dealer but they couldn't get the sound to reproduce (so they charged me $200 since they couldn't find the problem 馃憥). I read on one dealer's website that the tranny should be serviced between 30-50k miles. I'm wondering if the noise could be the tranny filter moving with the fluid when a load is put on (possibly dirty filter)? The sound isn't metallic, just a "click" sound. Maybe something in the transfer case. The dealer mechanic said the U joints were good. Anyone have an issue like this before?

Checked all the CV boots and look good. No cracking or grease coming out seen. Rubber is still flexible. Checked all lug nuts and none loose. Still a mystery noise. Very low volume click when accelerating and doesn鈥檛 happen all the time. Transmission service needed? Tranny filter sucking up as fluid moves under load?

I have never heard of a dirty trans filter causng a click. check your tires for something stuck in them like a screw DON"T run your bare hands around the tire. jack it up and rotate it. did you check the u-joints in the drive shaft? check for stones caught in a hub cap. which i doubt you have.
