Default Clicking sound on acceleration?

Has anyone noticed a clicking sound on acceleration? It seems to happen when the ICE kicks in. Trying to diagnose this is a pita. I ran across another thread about the loose axle screw, but I highly doubt it. Seems to come from the bottom front mid or bottom left front section.

Sounds like the way mine was early on. The bolts needed to be torqued and that cured it. Hasn't clicked since.

Just to confirm, you mean the bolts on the axle right?

Thanks in advance Cruiter!

Axle nuts or bolts, whatever they call 'em. I had the same problem. I heard a click on both acceleration and braking, from the right front. I asked the dealer to tighten the thingamajigs and, voila -- no more clicking.

I'm sorry I didn't catch this post when you posted it. Yes, the bolts on the axle. When they were torqued, the clicking disappeared.

Tightening these things is supposed to be part of the regular maintenance anyway.
