Noticed a clunk or click noise that I think is coming from the engine area directly in front of the driver on my vitara s.
I can't pinpoint where exactly it's coming from  but it seemed to be related to pressing the accelerator?
Sounds almost like a solenoid click.

Similar noise i have heard but only when really cold weather i have traced to the light sensor (round black dome) centre of the dash nearest the screen)
If you place a clean sponge between sensor/dash and screen take it for a test drive
Yet to remove and rectify as the weather is warm and knocking has stopped........iĺl post a how to next November 8-)

I'm still getting this weird click, seems to be after lifting of the clutch pedal now?
But doesn't do it every time?

I had a clunk noise on my wife’s Vitara S. They replaced a part on the prop shaft. It was clunking when pulling forward and then clunking again on reverse.

Not sure if yours is the same issue, but if so, it’s a known fault and Suzuki have a fix for it

Just wondering what mileage your vitara s has done when you had the work done tjhmortimer?
Mines coming up for 21000 miles.

That would make sense then. Ours has done around 25k now but the problem started at around 19k.

Took vitara into dealers today, had a drive around with head tehnician in car, who confirmed he could hear the noise.
Unfortunately as the noise couldn't be replicated while in the workshop I'm back to square one .
The only thinge noted was slight play in the front diff which he said he needs to check on another vitara s to see how it compares to mine.
