Clicking noise on regen/deceleration


Nov 29, 2018
Portland, OR
I have a 2020 Model X with ~20K miles. Lately I am hearing a clicking/ratcheting down noise when quickly letting off the accelerator. This only seems to happen when the car is cold. It lasts 5 or 10 minutes then goes away. Any ideas? Should I have it looked at?
Had the same issue on our 2018 MX 75D, I dont have the invoice anymore, but they found that the center lug nut on the axel was looser or something. Would create two clicking sounds anytime I let go of the pedal.

Try this thread. May help you. If it’s from inside the car this is relevant. If it’s from outside the car there’s another thread about creaking ball joints somewhere.
