Question about 2005 Honda Civic

Tinny clicking noise

My 2005 civic makes a very low tinny-clicking noise when I'm driving at slow speeds or pulling away. The noise appears to be coming from the right hand side front wheel. There is no unusual tyre-wear/handling. The noise does not seem to be getting any worse.

Hi! have you physically removed the wheel? if not then a good inspection off the vehicle may help. Check the circumference of the tyre for a tack/nail then look around the inside of the wheel for signs of chaffing or rubbing.
Maybe your Discs are showing too much corrosion around the edge and just touching the caliper, a scrape with a decent file would cure it.

    Hello again, Just another thought! you say pulling away/slow speeds. It may be the Constant velocity joint (part of the driveshaft) sometimes they dry up i.e. grease de-grades hence a der der der clicking sound MORE so when cornering?

    Good luck!

I have a 2004 honda civic and it makes a droaning noise when i change gears, coudl this be an internal gearbox fault? i also have a constant screaching noise when driving when i slighly move the steering...

Pilot bearing or a throw bearing is what makes the noise while shifting gears and as for the steering noise, you either have low steering fluid or the steering pump belt is loose.

Breaking at slow speed there is a bad bearing o scrunching noise.

This is a hub issues. the bearings are dry and i would get this looked at before they get to dry. i would also check the entire axle assembly as well. just too be safe. i suspect the bearings will need to be replaced. (repacked)

Noise from middle to front of truck, when in 4WD at slow speed

If you are driving on pavement or solid surface in 4 low you will get a heck of a noise. Should only be used for slow off road, or pulling stumps. 4 hi is used for snow, rain etc.
