01 honda crv ex correct or mitsubshi car ?
hey how are you
1- would you describe it as also a rapid clicking noise at extreme right and left,like if you did a circle starting from a stand still and turn to right or left and take off
will hear it loud
if that is the case that is the CV AXLES making that noise ,I would raise it and make sure no grease coming out of them and sometimes grease want be coming out but it will be bad internally
I sent you picture of cv axles and locations of them
if continuous noise ,you need to check wheel bearings
you can raise on lift and see if there play in the wheel hub bearings,common issue
I see the other expert left you, maybe I can be of some help. If this is an all wheel drive CR-V has the rear differential fluid been changed recently?
Please do that for me and if you have the VIN can you post that also for me?
Thank you for that. You do have an AWD CR-V and from the description you have given it does sound like the rear differential fluid has not been changed in quite some time.
When the fluid first starts to brake down the differential causes a vibration on tight turns that may even feel like it is coming from the front. As the fluid further brakes down and degrades the differential will actually make a screeching sound that sounds like a dry wheel bearing.
If you get the fluid changed you may have to change it 3 or 4 times with a test drive in between or by running on a lift. There is a special fluid required for the differential which will have to come from Honda.
Your vibration may be a tire issue that you can confirm by having the tires rotated. If the vibration improves or goes away you will then know it is the tires for sure.
That is a lot of miles between changes. Honda does recommend at least every 30,000 miles depending on driving conditions.
I am getting ready to leave work right now but will see if you still need help once I get home
Sorry I got busy and forgot to check on you.
You do not have to see a Honda dealer if you can find someone that will use the correct Honda fluid.
There are a couple of service bulletins Honda has on this subject. the one applying to your CR-V calls for replacing parts but I would try the fluid changes first especially since it is cheaper and should work out for you.
