clicking noise

I just got the same problem on my 2014 GC. I went to the dealer and they told me the same thing.
is a normal noise and there is no fix for that. I remember when I first got the car within the first week the brake pedal
started doing a whistling sound every time I took my foot of the brake, now its doing the clicking and its annoying.
I will take it to another dealership hopefully I will have better luck.

I have a fairly pronounced "thud" when releasing my brake pedal quickly. It seems louder and happens more often on this vehicle versus others I have driven (including) Jeeps. Possibly it is he pedal hitting the brake light switch bumper harder? If so, has anyone tried putting some soft, squishy foam to dampen the noise? It's freezing in NJ and my wife drives our TH, so I can't go out and check myself

"Clinking" noise from brake pedal

I should also note, I had the brake booster replaced for a vac leak. Brakes work quite well, but return "thud" is audible and annoying and from my recollection, has always been there.

"Clinking" noise from brake pedal

So I've been doing some research, and have an idea. I found a gas and brake pedal assembly for a 2014 jeep Cherokee on eBay. Please refer to my picture

The part in the red circle is attached/part of the brake light switch (which appears bolted to the firewall). It's my understanding, when the brake pedal is pressed, the contact between the metal square (attached to the brake pedal) which is circled in green, and the rubbery-looking part circled in red is broken, thus causing the brake lights to turn on. When the brake pedal is released, the green circled part comes back into contact with the red circled part, causing the brake lights to go off.

The green circled part is not padded at all and the red circled part appears to be a rubbery/plastic maybe. What if some padding, like car washing sponge-like material was placed around the green circled part. Something like the material they used on old headphones or speakers... Something that gives, but is squishy. Just enough to dampen the noise, but not take up a lot of space. I must say, I have no idea if the piece circled in red has to touch metal or just be touching something/pushed in.

This makes sense to me, because when I pop my foot off the brake, I hear the "thud" noise from down around the brake pedal (like the 2 pieces coming back into contact quickly and forcibly), but if I let my foot off the brake slowly, it's silent. I know this noise has been documented on this thread and some others in his forum and other keep forums. This is different from the "squeaky" noise some others have mentioned. As far as the "clicking", that could be from relay in the switch of the brake booster itself.

Any other thoughts on this would be great!

This is really annoying and more people need to know about this before they buy a jeep.
Saying it is 'normal' is not a solution !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow!! Really, if you or your wife is annoyed by this, I barely notice it, then I'd hate to see what you consider "nice".

If it is anything from the Asian makes then, there are a boatload of airbags that can harm you that should prevent you from ever driving again.

Hi doig2000--if this is something you'd like to have addressed at your dealership, I'm happy to help. Just let me know.
