Just been to my "local" re knocking from the rear.

I explained the problem, mostly does it from cold start first thing in morning, only seems to be on one side, only knocks if one side bumps, not both.

The dealer has already re-torqued that bolt, checked the springs and applied lubricant (to the car.....).

He has now told me of the bump stop problem and also thinks it could be the shock absorbers. He said there is a design problem in that when the car has been sat overnight, the oil drains to the bottom of the shock so that when you drive it after sitting for a while it knocks until such time the oil swishes around or does what its supposed to do. He said honda are looking at the issue.
