My guess is sway bar bushings. All hondas have clunky sway bar sounds in my experience. My new passport does, at least I assume thats what it is. Only other sound I hear is the diff thunking now and then.I got under mine and noticed if I hit the parking brake cables there was some rattle, but I don't think it's the same noise. I only hear mine with the window down and going slow (about 15mph). I checked under the spare tire as in the previous post for out of place tool. Everything was in the right place. I wonder how they tightened the brackets. The cables just go through a loop but I suppose they may have just squeezed the loop tighter.
Please keep me posted and thanks
Sway bar bushings on brand new vehicle? My son had a 2008 Element and bushings had to be replaced because of rattle at about 80k miles.My guess is sway bar bushings. All hondas have clunky sway bar sounds in my experience. My new passport does, at least I assume thats what it is. Only other sound I hear is the diff thunking now and then.
A quick test could be to spray some water underneath where the sway bar and bushings are on each side. See how it affects the sounds.Anyone have a fix for this or is it the bushings? Mine is doing the same thing I noticed yesterday when my windows were down.
Also it could be the sway bar endlinks. I believe the 10k service calls for those to be checked/torqued. Hondas just do have noisy suspension though so I don’t worry about it too much.I have found on some hondas that the sway bars just make noise at the bushings, even if the bushings are fine.
