Does your e-Niro suffer from the clicking noise?

A poll to see how many of the UK imported cars are actually suffering from this clicking noise.
If your car is one of those affected, can you post in the comments below the poll at what mileage you first started noticing the problem - and if the dealer has since managed to fix it.

Although only a few people have voted, only two cars seem to be affected (and those two are from abroad). So where are all the UK people who have been affected? Where are all the votes from 200 or so other UK owners? I realise that not all of them will be members here, but surely there are more than just 9 of them.

Interesting to see around a 30% failure rate so far - seems very high to me for new cars with low mileage.
Not at all convinced that the shaft re-alignment is going to be a permanent fix either judging by the comments from the ones who have had it done.
Down to just over a quarter of owners who have voted now (just 19 of all e-Niro owners here). Still a sizable minority of owners who are experiencing this problem though.

My recollection from previous weeks of discussion was that there were more people than five on this forum apparently having first hand experience of the issue, plus mention of others on FB or similar - maybe some of those are the same people. And mention of others 'worldwide'.
And then there was a mention of 30 new motors being imported - to where? Europe, UK?
Are these motors possibly the same design as for Konas?
Perhaps it is more of a problem than they are letting on and they are anticipating at least 30 cars will be. If it is a batch number problem and say it starts to become more noticeable after say, 3000 miles, some people will not have reached that yet - but they anticipate it will reach that number in the near future. Probably more economic to ship 30 out at once rather in dribs and drabs - plus it won't damage their reputation as much if they can have an instant fix for people rather than them hanging on for months for a repair and some of them being advised not to drive their cars in the meantime.
