You are correct, Ingineer. i had to go plug-in and listen again. It is a bit faint than before. Or maybe it's my hearing :D

Ingineer wrote:The "Clunk click Clunk" sound when you begin charging is not the charger, but rather the battery contactors performing precharge and then closure to connect the on-board charger to the pack. This will still occur, so I suspect you are mistaken that this is no longer happening on your car.

ya the clunk wont go away but i think the OP was saying it was connecting/disconnecting more than once.

He may be referring to the Mennekes charging plug in Europe.

Hi. I am having this exact problem. I am here in the UK with a 2012 LEAF. The L2 isn't working on any rapid charger I try and the L1 is absolutely fine. I don't know anything about Diodes etc. My local nissan garage said they will have to look into this. What ? In layman's terms do I tell them needs doing?

In simple terms you tell them the car needs a new charger. Should be covered by warranty.
