    Its really annoying (somewhat embarrassing) driving around my parking garage and having this clicking sound echo the whole way.
    I've searched the forums and every eludes to this being "normal". Has anyone actually confirmed that there is no issue here and that there is nothing we can do about the sound?

    I actually only hearing the clicking after I have been driving around for a while. As in, I make the full drive to work, stop and go traffic for 30 min. I get to my parking garage, and the clicking is real loud. Doesn't seems to stop after warming up. Seems to only appear after driving for a while.

    The funny thing about this problem is people say it's normal. If so why doesn't it start immediately on delivery? Why does it take 3,4,5k miles to develop and some never make that noise. I have 10k on my car and they don't click so is my car adnormal?

    This may sound crazy. I brought my car in for that issue and it ended up being the rear diff. Tech changed the diff fluid and no noise now..
