Rattling speedometer housing

The 2 bolts on top connecting it to the tank are tight but there's play and it rattles/buzzes like crazy when the RPM's are high.

Remove the speedo housing and see if the tank still has the rubber piece (honda part number 17511-KGB-610) installed on the top bracket where the speedo would mount. sometimes this piece is lost when reassembling. you can order one from honda (should be less than $10), but i usually wrap this bracket with a rubber type of tape in the mean time.

also, check to make sure the two fasteners have the collars (screw fits through this and goes in the speedo screw hole) and the rubber washer (between the screw and the speedo). without one or the other, it could buzz at speed.

good luck.

Rattling instrument cluster on gas tank.


The rattling coming from the gauge cluster on my bike was driving me crazy, but turned out to be an easy fix. Take the three bottom allen head screws out of the gauge cluster,(you have to remove the gas cap first) and remove it from the tank. Flip it over and you will see two small tabs at the top of the cluster with rubber bumpers on them, use a screwdriver or something to bend the out a lttle and place it back on the tank and secure it. Worked for me and only took about ten minutes. Hope this helps you.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

your torque converter is rattling that is the clutch on the stator inside is worn out... You can stall test your torque converter ...Do this but follow correctly. put on parking brake..on the asphalt,,,, block all four wheels...push the gas to the floor for just 2 seconds...down one, two lift off gas pedal quickly..
when your doing this WATCH your RPMs they should reach to around 2200-2400 between the 2-4 rpm if not the Torque Converter is toast!!!! If your car passes the STAll test then when you tranny was put back on one of the fly wheel covers are rubbing....!!!.

Rattle noise coming from front driver side wheel when going over bumps


It could be several things.

1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.

Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

Has anyone ever complained about a rattle or buzz coming fron the lower right hand corner area around the windhield? I had the w/s replaced recently and have had a noise ever since. The w/s company looked...


If the rattle is repeatable, try pushing down on either side of the Instrument Panel at the A pillars. If the rattle does not go away, it may be the hood flushness adjusting plastic bolt rattling within the hood hinge. Open the hood and in the hood hinge assembly you will see a hood flushness adjusting bolt. This is the suspect part. Turn the bolt head 1/4 - 1/2 turn counter clockwise. This will ensure full contact of the bolt head to the hinge. Close the hood and try to repeat the rattle. If the hood flushness adjusting bolt is the source of the noise, you can also grasp the rear of the hood (near the windshield) on either side and move it up and down. If the bolt is loose, the hood will have up-and-down looseness. Another issue to be aware of: This noise also may be described as a creak/squeak or sometimes as a pop/snap. The source is the styrofoam block glued to the headliner in both forward corners (at the top of the A-pillar). The styrofoam block, if mis-positioned slightly, can contact the sun visor mounting bracket causing the noise. The noise can be intermittent and can also be affected by temperature (usually occurs when top of vehicle is heated by the sun, but sometimes occurs only when the vehicle is cold). Repair is to use a razor blade and trim the styrofoam block at the point of contact. DO NOT try to remove and re-position the styrofoam block - you'll break it! It is held to the headliner with a really strong adhesive.
