    I have the same problem with my 2006 CR-V. I noticed that I can change the sound by pushing and pulling on the roof by the front seat interior lights. Took the car to Honda and they put some insulation up there, but they didn't think it would work. And it didn't. They told me to take it to an auto body shop to see if there was anything they could do. Hoping to do that tomorrow, but would love to know if you found an answer. Thanks!

    I have a Honda 2004 CR-V and I've noticed for the past 6-8 months some kind of squeek/squeeling sound coming from the dash or somewhere in the left front console of the car. It's kind of like a high pitched hydrolic/air release sound that makes the noise and then stops. It's difficult to duplicate when I purposely try. But it usually happens at low speeds or even sitting idle at a stoplight. So I thought maybe it has something to do with the A/C. But I had the A/C looked at by the dealership and they said it was good. My brakes are in great shape. I put new tires on the car about 1.5 years ago. Does anyone have any ideas what this squeeking noise in warm weather could be?!?!?!

    I hope it's not the grrrrrrr sound that comes from the lose heat sink. My 2005 CR-V has this problem. The heat sink always vibrates and I take it to a mechanic and he pushes it back. I think next time when it comes, I am going to screw it so that it doesn't make any more noise.

    Thanks for responding! It's definitely not a grrrr or grinding sound at all. It really is more like a high pitched hydrolic squeel or air release something or other in the front cabin. Would that "grrrrrr" sound happen when you're stopped at a stop light? Its baffling to me. I have a feeling it might be something with the AC compressor since that's a known defect with our cars...but the AC is still cold and runs fine. I've turned it on and off with no sounds to it at all.
  • hi, a friend of mine has a 2003 crv awd, she recently had a flat tire and had 2 tires replaced. when she is on the freeway she hears what sounds like a flat tire noise now and has gotten out to see if she indeed has one. any ideas of what it could be? this crv has been a real lemon for her unlike the others she has had. any help would be appreciated

    Your friend's OWNER's MANUAL recommends replacing all 4 tires, or putitng new tires in the front. The way AWD system operates, difference in tire circumference between new and old, and even new tires from different manufacturer's trigger the AWD.

    Also, the AWD fluid needs to be replaced on the regular basis. There is no aftermarket fluid, Honda's Dual Pump Fluid or Dual Pump Fluid II are the only choices.
  • My 2003 is having this issue where it sounds like the brakes need very badly to be changed, but the pads are all fine and the car stops great. The sound started off happening only when the brakes were applied, but now it does it much more frequently and makes an awful noise when i go in reverse. I was told it could just be something stuck under a brake pad, but it seems like more than this. Please help!
    thanks,
  • I have been totally annoyed by a high pitched whine on my CRV for quite a while. the performance of the car is not affected. just today I noticed that the noise begins anywhere from 30-40 mph and will sound when giving it gas or just as i take my foot off the gas pedal. then I tried taking it out of overdrive and wallah! no noise. I called Honda fishing around for some insight and Mike said maybe it is my differential. would rather have a better idea BEFORE i take it to Honda. Anyway wanted to share this with youl
  • she had the other 2 tires replaced last year and she matched the 2 new ones to those. she had someone look at it and they said it is her ball joint causing the problem.

    In order to diagnose one or the other, you will need to remove the wheels. There is a sign window on top of the caliper, peek into it and see how much material is left on the brake pad.

    The squeal could come from the brake wear sensors, which is meant to alert you that you have reached the end of the brake pad life, and they need to be replaced. Braking is not affcted until the material is work off completely.

    Brake pad replacement at an independant shop should be about $150, ($40-$80 if you do the work your self)

    However, if you don't address the problem, then the backing plate, once the brake pad material has worn off, will gouge the rotors, or the piston in the caliper will fall out. Either way you are looking at triple or quadruple the repair cost. Get it repaired now, rather than later!!!

    I have a similar high-pitched whine noise, and would really like to know what it is. It sounds like the power steering pump when the car is stationary in neutral, but when I am out on the highway at 130km/h it is like you say, gone when out of overdrive.
    Transmission? Alternator? power steering?
    2003 crv 150kkm. Car runs great in all other respects.
    puzzling
  • HI beee1 Just yesterday I noticed that the noise does not occur at all when it is damp and rainy out. I am also beginning to think it doesn't start until the car has been running for about 10 minutes but this needs further exploration. I don't want to bring it into Honda for them to go on a expensive fishing expedition without as much info to give them as possible. My car has115,000+ and I love it except for this.
  • I have a 2010 CRV with 6000 miles. When I drive over 50mph, I hear an annoying chirping sound from what seems to be the air vents. Does anyone have an idea what it could be?
    thanks.
  • Our CR-V has intermittent "whooping" noise, Occurs at varying times and seems related to brakes and possibly letting up (releasing them). No apparent issued with brake performance at this time. Thanks
  • I am really disappointed on my 2010 CRV, which was made in Japan but has been in shop multiple times. The car has several assembly issues: right strut rattling, lossen driver seat and annoying noise (intermitent) on sharp right turn. I brought the car to the dealer many times, the rattling noise and the losen driver seat were fixed, but no answer for the right turn noise. The noise started when the car has around 6000 miles on the odometer. I almost lost hope of fixing this issue and am considering trade it in for a different brand. Does anyone on this board has any clue? Many thanks.
  • My car makes dragging noises while driving. The noise stops when I take my foot off the gas but does it again when I accelerate. This might happen a few times. It usually happens when I am driving at speeds between 25-35 miles per hour. It doesn't happen when I turn so I don't know if that excludes it from being a rear differential problem.

    Any ideas??
  • I've heard the same noise. It is like a strap slapping metal. Here is what I think it is. It only happens for me in strong wind and especially cross wind. There is a little plastic mud flap to the front of the rear tire. I think that is flapping in strong winds. That is the only thing I can see under the car that looks like wind would make it move.

    I've heard this on two CRVs. Before I bought my car the dealer let me take one home for the night. I heard the noise on that car. The CRV I bought has the same exact noise - but only in strong winds, never any time else do I hear it.
  • My wife just started noticing this noise when the cold weather hit. It sounds like the power steering unit is turned too far, but it happens intermittently when the car is slowing and it doesn't matter if she's turning or not. I'd say it happens 10% of the time when she slows to a stop.

    I put the car in neutral and it kept sounding. When she stops completely, it goes away. Once we heard it when she accelerated but it fades away at higher speeds.

    I tried belt dressing, checked for anything touching a fan blade or belt, and can't see anything. We had the alternator checked and it isn't the problem.

    Frozen brake calipers? But it really sounds like something rotating pretty fast even at slow speeds.
  • I solved the problem, I traded the car for a different Honda model.

    What gen is it? and what mantenance has been performed?
  • Did you try the heat sink. My 2005 CR-V had the same problem. The heat sink was making the noise. It becomes loose often. The best is to tie it up or nail it to something. I had enough noises on my 2005 CR-V that I sold. It is indeed a reliable vehicle but the highway noise, rattles put me off..
  • I've had this noise but where is the heat sink.
    Thanks Gary
  • I have a clunking sound or sounds like something is loose under the front of the car when going over bumps and what not in the road. Does not happen all the time some days its there and others its not. Sounds like it"s coming from the right side but I could be wrong. its a 2010 crv. Any help would be great....
  • I have a 2008 CRV and noticed the same thing. Did you get any further info on this? For me tt seems a lot worse the colder it gets and after I drive for a while it gets better. I took it the dealer and they said that there was a service bulletin out on this and it was a faulty oil pump. I was skeptical but since it's still under warranty it didn't cost anything to replace the oil pump. It didn't fix the problem and I'm going to take it back in.

    Think its the rear differential and think there should be a class suit instituted

    I have a 2002 CRV. I have popping sounds from underneath the car (both front and back), particularly at low speeds. It is really noticeable when backing in and out of the garage. There is also a rumbling sound from the rear end, as well as a slight rubbing sound on occasion when turning at 15-30 mph. The rear differential and transmission fluid is new and the u-joints have been replaced. Any ideas as to what might be going on?

    I am getting a creaking noise which sounds like it's coming from my front passenger door panel or form that vicinity. It happens when I first accelerate. I can alos recreate it by having the truck in gear and pressing and releaing the brake. I have tried to press on the door panel and the other plastic around there but have been unable to get the sound to stop. The sound is not there when the truck is cruising, only when I first accelarate. Anybody else experience this and if so what was the solution.. Thank

    I had a similar noise with my 2002 CRV (see earlier post). Mine was caused by two things:

    1. The brake pad had separated from the caliper (the subject of a Honda TSB) and damaged the rotors.
    2. A stabilizer link was bad and had to be replaced.

    Hope this helps.
  • I am purchasing a 2002 Honda CR-V there is a noise it sounds like in drive train and it kinda wines when I push the accelerator. take off overdrive and the noise goes away......??? Any Ideas? The more I accelerate in overdrive the wine increases. This is an automatic naturally! 4cylinder. It kinda feels like a little shake around 40 MPH or so at first I thought it was an unbalanced tire or something.

    I wrote about the same noise in my automatic 2003 Honda CRV. I never found out what it is, but it doesn't seem to affect the performance of the car, it is just annoying. I also think it is more noticeable in warm weather ( i live in Jersey). I have about 122000 miles on my CRV. If your high pitched whine is the same as mine, then the little shake at 40 mph is something else and not connected to the whine. If you find out more about the whine let me know. Good luck with the shaking.
