Default 4EAT Shifter noise when stoping/accelerating

is it normal for a sound as if something is sliding/clicking into place when coming to a stop and accelerating from a stop? the sound comes from the shifter...I have a video of the sound, although it sounds a bit different in real life... if needed I can upload it....

best way I can describe the sound is if you put 2 or 3 marbles on a track and they came to a stop.... the sound that the marbles make hitting one another when they come to a stop... is what it sounds like

Mine does this going into or out of 2nd. Never been a problem. I'm pretty sure the consensus was its normal.

Default Shifter clicking

Mine does the same thing. I guess it's normal but it doesn't seem right.

I'm pretty sure it's some kind of safety switch having to do with the shifter. I've noticed this with my Impreza. I can hear it if sitting still, letting off the brake and then stepping on it again. A faint click.

It's likely a solenoid clicking. Some 4EATs do it, some don't. Mine has never made the noise, others say it's been doing it from day 1. No harm, no foul.
