Unhappy Flapping Noise

I hear a flapping noise (like a baseball card on spokes) coming from the right-hand side of my car. I hear it when I'm accelerating up a hill or if I let the gas off and put it back on. I was told it's "cupped" tires???

cupped tires will make noise. Without a sample, we can't offer an opinion.

What tires are you on? I have the good year RS-A tires on my trailhawk, and while they have worn fairly quickly, no cupping or feathering.

Cupping is caused because either the tires are junk, or because something is up with the suspension or alignment.

I'm having the exact same issue putnicks. I have a 2016 75th Anniversary edition renegade and it's only in the last 6-8 months that this noise started.

For me, it happens when it rains heavily or snow. It doesn't matter if I turn off ESC or put it in 4wd.

I recently had my renegade serviced and they said they couldn't find anything and the noise happens out of the blue. Today is the first time I finally got audio of the sound, but it sounds exactly as you described.

Are you thinking of getting a second opinion? Send me a direct message as I'd be glad to get this over to a Case Specialist who'll work with you and the dealer toward a potential solution.

I hear a flapping rattle sound as well. I believe it is the hood though. Sounds like it is coming from the right side high up in the engine compartment. That is about as far as I've gotten with it. Only rattles from like 20-30mph then stops.

I was thinking about getting a second opinion and also bringing my Renegade back to the dealership so I could let them hear the audio I recorded so they can thoroughly check out what the issue might be.

They weren't too concerned the first time around, that's for sure.

Hello Darb1177,

We understand this could be rather concerning. If you end up going into the dealer, let me know. I am available via direct message and would be happy to help with that process.

It is your mother in law strapped to the roof.

As mentioned to other forum members, I am here to help if an additional layer of assistance is needed if you decide to go back to the dealer.
