    CLICKING NOISE - HELP

    Hi all...I have a 2011 WRX just purchased a month ago...22K miles. Only aftermarket mod is COBB intake (it has been tuned). Only thing I have "done" to the car is put a factory heat shield on the car that was missing.

    Just started hearing clicking type noise...almost straining type of sound (not a grind or clank) upon acceleration. Also, only when depressing pedal when launching after shifting into a new gear. Almost sounds like coming from backseat under car. Sound is faint.

    Any ideas? Sorry for vague description, but thought I would try. Car runs great otherwise.

    Much appreciated!

    Not very educated on cars so take this with a grain of salt, but I had a 04 2.5RS with a similar experience. The heat shield was loose and just needed to be tighten. It had rattled loose from getting on the car too much.... im sure someone else here will chime in with a more educated opinion. Good luck!

    Is your car under warranty? Make Subaru do the work.

    Thanks, would if I could but no factory warranty (I do have CarMax warranty for major issues).

    I drove car a few miles to replicate sound and try to pinpoint location...the sound happens only when depressing throttle/pedal quickly just after shifting into gear...sounds like a creak or rickety type of sound...but happens quick then stops and is not present as I accelerate in a particular gear. Could be suspension but not sure...heat shield is secure. Car runs great and is tight so it is confusing to say the least.

    It's a 2011 WRX, with under 36k miles on it...it has a factory warranty. Unless maybe it is a Salvage vehicle or something?

    Take it to the dealer.

    It won't hurt to take it in, and hopefully they are mod-friendly.
