I am getting a rattling sound from the front right tire area I have looked into it a bit and discovered that its is likely the lower control arm bushing and I am wondering if this is a problem I can repair myself or if it better to leave this to a professional
Re: rattlin sound coming from front right tire area
ITS EASIER FOR A PROFESSIONAL BECAUSE IT ALSO CAN COME FROM THE STRUTS I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND THE SHOP TOLD ME THAT BUT THEN I TOOK IT TO A DIFFERENT PLACE AND THEY REPLACED THE STRUTS AND IT WENT A WAY

Have the tires inspected for a stuck stone or metal object. The anti-roll bar may have lost one of it's rubber bushings where it connects to the suspension on that side. A shock absorber may have lost a rubber bushing.
It's probably your cv (constant velocity) joint. Jack up the honda and put it on safety stands, look at the area behind the center of both front wheels, there is a rubber boot. This boot protects the cv joint from dirt, road grime, water, salt, etc. If you see splits in it or grease on the boot, it has deteriorated, and is letting contaniments in. The damage has already been done if it makes a rattling noise going around corners at slow speed. I changed both cv joints (purchased rebuilt axles for $49 each) in my 92, but it is a big job labor wise. There's a lot to take apart to remove the axles.
I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck
no it would not be the timing belt making a rattling noise it couldn possible be you heat shield around your break rotor it could be someting having to do with ur suspenion like a spring maybe what kind of rattling noise? or a regular heat shield but loose in that particular area
