Rear passenger clicking noise - 2017 Atima Sign In


I just purchased a used 2017 Altima and I'm having some annoying clicking sounds disturb my daily drive. At first I thought the sound was normal car noise and ignored it. Now a month later and the dealership wants to charge to take it back and look. Short on funds so here I am. I do not have any clicking in the steering wheel when I turn, nor any other vibrations or weird driving issues. Sometimes the clicking isn't even there if the road is exceptionally smooth. However I live in an area with small little bumps all over... nothing major... you wouldn't even notice them on the road.... and the car will not stop clicking when I drive thru this area of town. I have recorded the sound now and wondered if someone would take a listen and tell me what you think it sounds like. When the clicking happens you mostly hear it rattling on quicker than normal as speeds pick up over 40... but occasionally just driving slowly through a parking lot I'll hear the random one off click. So take a listen'll hear the car road noise of course but the clicking is just non stop and not hard to miss. Would appreciate any opinions on what it could be.

You're going to have to bite the bullet and let a professional listen to it, Your video link requires download and I'm not doing that.

Cars require maintenance and that is part of owning a car so if you can't even afford to have it looked at, then you really should look for another mode of transportation.

Just like in my younger years, friends would spend every penny they had to make payments on the dream car they wanted and then couldn't afford the insurance and fuel to drive it.

You certainly aren't going to find the source of the noise in an Internet forum.
