Customer Question

Hello Pearl: my first time using this. I have a 2013 Honda Accord with 100K miles on it. Never had one problem with the car until now. I have a low volume roaring noise coming from the underneath the instrument cluster panel (speedometer) and it goes up and down with acceleration. Getting a littler louder each week.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: Everything is the same age of the car 2013. I have not checked the fuel filters but the noise is very close to the speedometer though.
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I normally do but this one might be a little more tricky but I will try. I've done nothing so far just digging into it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's all I know at the moment.

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. try adjusting some knobs or dials on the climate control panel to see if it changes or stops.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
David with all due respect sir. I'm a car guy and the knobs and climate center are not the problem. I troubleshot the noise to instrumentation (speedometer) or slightly underneath no where else and the noise tracks the speed up and down with the car. I could probably call you and drive the call and let you hear it but not sure what your hours are.

Im just going by my experience with the same problem. seen this 2 times and it was the actuator on the left side just above the gas pedal.

Expert:  david craig replied 10 months ago.

pull the cluster. see if you get a better feel from where its coming from

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Does that mean the actuator needs to be replaced or is something that needs attention with lubricant? I've never fooled with that before sir.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
David any way that could be a CVT issue causing the noise?
Expert:  david craig replied 10 months ago.

does this happen at idle or just during driving?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Good morning sir. Only when driving and acceleration no noise at idling.
Expert:  david craig replied 10 months ago.

SB-15-056

SB-2013-12-08

IN-RFP-07-2013

it appears the tsb's are regarding a humming noise coming from the front wheel bearings.

Expert:  david craig replied 10 months ago.

do you still need assistance?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
David turns out to be the upper CVT transmission mount. The vibration is transferring through to IP instrument panel.
Expert:  david craig replied 10 months ago.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No problem sir it may help someone else out. Thanks!
