deni.babe buy two new rear Sachs shocks approx 100 from autodoc if no luck from the honda dealer..

HENDY I have this first thing after sitting, the seller gave me 100 off the price of the car as some mech told them must be the bushes lol. But had already read about this and knew it affected many 8th Gens.

My only Honda dealer in my city is very friendly and helpful, and only being a 5 min walk away am gona contact them and see what they can do. Baring in mind mines is a 2007.

I have been in a few times since getting the car for various parts, the parts guy and mechs are really helpful, always ask me through into the actual store good bunch of guys.

Heres hoping.

creaking can be the handbrake cable which is probably what you're hearing when jacking it up,sometimes you will hear the same sound when passengers get into the rear of the car...

shokka9 Thanks for this.

I have the exact same issue, and it's going to Honda Swansway Stretford, tomorrow for an A/C service + regas.

I just called Honda, and mentioned this service bulletin, explaining what it was and what is needed to fix it. Mentioned the prices people have paid, as well as the free ones.

Hopefully they will give it a grease up tomorrow. Let's see.

cplnoonoo Not necessarily terminal though, the greasing up bulletin is meant to fix the creak by applying more lube basically.

SimonWard808 Don't know I've only just come across this thread but THANK YOU GUYS. That noise has been annoying me for a month now and was about to disassemble the rear suspension tomorrow.
Saved me a days work and now Honda can do it for me come MOT time in a few months.

Anyone who has paid for this repair,where your car falls within the recall,should ask for a refund. No excuses.
never was a recall ,just a service bulletin...
