Clicking sound 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Sign In

About 60,000 miles. There is a clicking sound that appears to be coming from the bottom of my vehicle, possibly by a wheel on the left side. Clicking sound only happens when I accelerate and it is amplified more when driving past walls or higher ground. Anyone know what it could be? I'm thinking CV axle but I am not experienced enough to know. Getting it diagnosed tomorrow, but thought I would see if anyone here had some ideas.

You hear it more with reflected sound of a wall but noise is there at those times anyway.

This is consistent with a CV or U-Joint gone bad or several other possible things so requires inspection to find exactly what.

Now - this being a 2014, 60K is likely a "Powertrain" component. There about certainly is a warranty either fully or with a deductible that extends beyond the original bumper to bumper one. Anything damaged wouldn't be covered.

Do check coverage for this in case it is more extensive than something simple and an easy fix.

Noises are warnings so do get this diagnoses ASAP. Could be a few things or even lug nuts not tight (very serious) can make noise similar to this*

* Rule that out yourself before driving it again. Loose wheels - any reason surprisingly can feel fine for some miles and time just finger tight - don't ask but usually a LEFT side wheel if so............

Brake pads rattling in their holder is a possibility also.

See if the sound stops if you lightly touch the brakes
