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'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.
Hello Darb1177,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 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???
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.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.
Thank you. I believe this is just the hood rattling. I'm not overly concerned.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.

I've had the hood up several times and for the life of me can't figure it out. Only happens when accelerating from 15 to 40 under mild acceleration. Low and Hard acceleration do not produce the sound.My 2015 renegade latitude has the same sound. Been noticing it for at least a year. I'm somewhat mechanically inclined so I can tell you it is certainly not a loose hood. It sounds like the half axle. If anyone figures this out, please let me know. TIA. P.s. same area, right front.
