Hi guys,

Not asking what this is as Ive seen enough posts. But what im trying to find out is how many of people who have had this problem get something done about it under warranty and how many have to pay, and what they paid.
I have the problem and a Honda wear and tear warranty but my dealership wont do it as it doesnt fit wear and tear. Just wondering if thats standard or do some Honda dealers do it and some dont.

Thanks

But its not wear and tear, it's a know fault and has been since 2006. I think there is even a Honda service bulletin about it. Initially dealers were changing the sub-frame (or saying they were), but now it's new bushes I believe.

How old is your Civic?

Its an 07 Type S, ok so its not wear and tear, the question still remains I guess I have a Honda full warranty with wear and tear, should it be done under that?
Also is it actual bushes wearing out? grease drying up or something else? what actually causes the clicking?

I thought it was the subframe bolts that needed removing and greasing rather than the bushes. Mines going in to Honda tomorrow to be looked at along with clutch creaks.

All done under waranty for me as well. They replaced loads of things trying to solve it:) New Pedal box, Clutch slave cylender i think - Then brought it back again for the sub-frame fix = No more clicking plus load of new parts:)

Mines out of warranty. Cost me £45 from Honda and no more noise.

I had the dreaded click noise, as my car is out of warranty, I decided to tighten the subframe bolts up myself both sides. (Did not go down the grease route, just tightend them). I was suprised to find how many turns I could get. Now the car feels a lot better and no more metallic clicks. I think it was 17mm and 19mm sockets I used.

Ok, Ive decided to have a go myself as theres pictures and directions. Does anyone know what they bolts have to be torqued to when they get retightened or is "as much as you can" good enough, and I take it not havine ever looked under my car that you have to take the plastic cover off to do this? is that pretty straightforward? Thanks

No plastic covers to take off. Maybe just try tightening them up first. Worked ok on mine without applying grease.

Mine did this until i had gearbox out for 3rd gear, didnt do it afterwards so i guess they were tightened more on reassembly.

Changed my oil yesterday, and while i was under i checked the bolts and found them impossible to tighten any more.
Before you go through all the hassle of undoing and lubeing just give them a good old tighten.

I'd try another dealer. This is actually a known problem and should be fixed if under the used warranty.
