someone just posted recently that they pulled a scent/deodorizer ball out of a vent that was rolling from side to side.Top of my dash, somewhere under the top trim piece. Something there that slides left/right when I go around curves. My daughter calls it the nickle. I've popped that trim off many times, used a flashlight and mirror, still can't find it.
I had a similar rattle in my dash, finally figured it was the clips that hold the trim piece down. I used some foam insulation and glued a strip to both the bottom of the trim piece and inside the dash to eliminate the gaps causing the rattle.Top of my dash, somewhere under the top trim piece.

Here is my “fix”. Fabbed out of the decorative garage door hardware I removed. This is not putting any undue pressure on the pedal, but just keeping it from rattling.Every manual TJ I've owned has had a rattley clutch pedal. Just the way they're mounted. I always wanted to find a fix but then I forget about it until I'm on a bumpy road again
X2Add Clutch Fan to the list. That was my under the hood chirp I battled for years.
I see some karma dollars for your troubles right there...I bought a Jeep from someone once that had all kinds of rattles I couldn't figure out. While doing a restoration on it, which had no carpet or drain plugs installed, I discovered all of this had fallen into the front floor drain holes and was trapped in the channels below. I cleaned it out and the rattle problem was solved!

Thanks for collaborating with me to find a fix, and glad that solved your mystery chirp too!X2
Chasing a long time chirpy belt type sound, and after replacing what seemed like everything possible with the help of @JeepZilla380 we narrowed it down to the fan clutch. I had not suspected it previously because I had just replaced mine during my engine swap with a brand new Hayden. Turns out it was faulty from the start and was the source of my chirp the whole time.
