I recall reading somewhere that the same issue exists with many Nissan ICE cars too.
Just look at the PDF, it lists lots of Nissans ...

Reading through the TSB it doesn't seem like this is more than an annoyance. I occasionally hear a faint tick sound in my Leaf on acceleration or deceleration but it almost sounds like normal gear lash. I was planning to just ignore this. Any experiences out there to contradict that sentiment?

I purchased my 2016 SV about 4 weeks ago. The clicking noise started about a week ago. After reading the service bulletin that addresses this issue, I called my local Nissan dealer and spoke with the service manager. He knew exactly what I was talking about, and that the remedy is what was detailed in the service bulletin.

I had the repair done yesterday, it took about 90 minutes, and set me back $150. The service manager told me that, while it’s annoying (which it WAS), it’s unlikely that that there would be any damage caused by not fixing it.

I am now enjoying only the gentle whirr of the motor, the way the EV gods intended.
