Thought I was hearing things. I too have heard this noise when pulling out of parking spot at work and making a hard right turn. I however thought it was coming from the rear but I haven't really looked into it. When I back out of my driveway at home and turn right or left, no noise, only when pulling forward then turning hard right. Any cause for concern here?

Search for a previous thread here at the R.O.C. concerning "brake noise". The thread is actually titled "noise of engagement from transmission." A few techies gave some startup noises you should hear. Honda brakes have some designed slop in the brake pads and may make noise the first time you change directions. You said you notice this pulling out of your driveway and another said when leaving a parking space at work. Could this be your problem?

I'm sure this isn't your problem, but even when the automatic door locks are disabled, you still hear the click when getting up to 9mph (or whatever it is).

Do you have to be turning to hear it? Mine makes the sound as I pull out of my driveway. I have tried several different things. It happens only when I am
pulling off, after being parked. It doesn't matter if I am backing out first or not. Some one suggested it may be the ABS self check. I have not taken mine in yet.
Please let us know what the dealer says or does.
Thanks

I definetly have that sound, but I've noticed there is alot of play in the tranny, when going from forward to reverse it bangs and when making a slow turn, then accelerating I get it too! Guess it must be made that way huh?

I notice this too, only 1st thing in the morning. Maybe a sticky strut? I'd say it sounds more like a creeking sound. I think the MDX's had the same issue and it was something with the strut. I'll do a search and see if I can find the fix and post.

Same here, does it in the morning when I pull out of my driveway in "R". Just after I put in "D" and move away...........this is when I hear the sound.

My Ody did this also but was not as often. Could be any of the things mentioned about. Mine does not seem related to steering or transmission.

ps, my drive is on a slight incline upto the street.....!!!

I believe the bang you are hearing it is the anti-lock brake setting. I would suspect that yours is not functioning correctly and therefore you hear it after every start from standstill.

gormlyflyer 2002 - I have the same noise, however, it is followed immediately every time by the auto door locks engaging. I'm wondering if it is some kind of transmission sensor that activiates at 9 MPH and tells the door solenoid locks to engage.

good point ebone.........i wondered if the two were related. i noticed the locks
immediately after hearing it also........i thought i read somewhere above that
someone heard it even when the auto locks were turned off. do you know how to run offf the auto locks? but wait, even if you turned off the "locks" the sensor, if thats what it is thats making noise, would still do its part and make the noise don't you think........even if doors didn't lock :confused:

Mine sounds more like a mechanical "clunk" I'm thinking the floating brake caliper/pads suggestion is what I'm hearing......thanks guys

No worries from my end, never really hear anything after my initial morning departure.
