Eagle GX started clicking in 1 gear after tire change

Sent the wife's Surly Ogre (SRAM Eagle GX) to the local bike shop for some new tires. When she got the bike back she immediately noticed that the bike makes a very audible clicking sound when she's in the 5th cog in from the frame. No other gear exhibits this issue -- just the 5th cog. The clicking sound can also be felt through the pedals and sounds like the chain is bouncing like it's about to change over to another cog.

I'd rather not go through the hassle of hauling it back to the shop but I'm a total n00b to bicycle maintenance. Any idea as to where I should start? The bike worked totally fine before going to the shop.

Being new all your gonna do is f*ck up the screws if you f*ck with the derailleur. I’d try turning the adjuster at the shifter 1/4 turn either clockwise or counterclockwise. A little go’s a long way in this.

You might also just want to take the wheel off then put it back on and torque it properly before making any adjustments
