Anyone else hearing a random popping noise from their '22 PF? My car is @ 1,900 miles and I recently started to notice the sound. It usually happens @ the beginning of the day and can't seem to isolate where the sound is coming from.

I've also heard a noise every now and again on a cold start. Mine isn't popping though, more like a grating sound. Almost sound like the fan blade is hitting the shroud. I'm hoping its just a tolerance issue, maybe the shroud is contracting enough to lessen the gap somewhere along its circumference and causing the fan blade to make contact. If that's the case, I'm thinking the affected area will eventually be 'grated' away and the problem will fix itself but will keep an eye on it. Anyone else experiencing anything similar?

I am experiencing a clicking noise seemingly behind the driver side hand rail.... Only happens mostly at night, during the day not so much.

I hear knocking in mine too... mainly when turning and it's like a pop or rocking noise. It's annoying never noticed and have had my car now for 2 months. I see there's 4 recalls... annoying and regret my purchase now. Also can't figure out why my dome light won't illuminate when my doors open. It's not a setting the rear hatch has same problem. For a 22 pathfinder this is more that dissapointing.

Is it the parking brake or the auto hold? I notice something that sounds like what you're describing on a cold start, but I think that it is either the parking brake or the auto hold system, as I only hear it right when I start to accelerate for the first time, and only very briefly. It actually sounds a lot like the sound that my previous cars would make when the collision avoidance system engaged, which further makes me think that it is the auto hold system.

No, coz the sound can be heard using the remote start as well, so way before any driving activity. The good thing is I have not heard it for a few weeks now so real happy about that. Hopefully it stays that way...
