Wow. I just noticed this the other day. I don't think it was there when it was new. Right before the doors lock. Clunk. Anyone know what this might be? It seems like it's coming from up front. But I thought maybe it was the trunk locking or something too. I just don't know.ridgeNH said:I use to hear one at about 6mph just before the doors lock.
I think it is still there but have just got use to it.

Hazcat, I think your noise is diferent. Check out this thread, then get your truck in for the repairs asap. http://www.ridgelineownersclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=955Hazcat said:I always have the pre-lock clunk, but occasionally I have a clunk or clunk-clunk in the first half block of driving. I'm trying not to worry about it since it seems common, and I don't notice a pattern yet i.e. air on, air off, on turns, on acceleration, etc. I want to take it to the service department, but since these only occur just after starting off, I wouldn't be able to replicate the noise for the service writers. I haven't noticed any clunks when not moving except for one that sounds like normal hvac stuff.
I did have a clatter-clunk on right turns after having the trailer hitch installed. Quite a disturbing thing for the owner of eight new cv joints. Some exhaust shielding was touching the muffler and after I bent that out a little, the sound was gone, a one finger repair.
I hope noises are merely a characteristic. My 1986 Toy truck with the 22R had a light piston slap on cold start for all of the 150K miles I had it. That took some getting used to.
Same here when A/C is left on and engine is started after sitting a day or two. I have tried to remember to turn A/C off before turning engine off and it does seems to happen less the next time I start the engine.a_vdk said:I notice it mainly when the engine is cold and the air conditioner is on prior to start.
