2012 Honda Fit. Aftermarket Konig Helium wheels. Bilstein B14 coilovers.
This condition has been present ever since I removed the steel wheels after I bought the car, they were rusted onto the hub, so I loosened the lug nuts, and drove and broke at low speeds-----this broke the rust. This information is not likely relevant.
What do you think the click click click… sound from the wheel well is coming from?
I’ve eliminated the following causes:
- rocks in tires
- bad CV axle (the CV axles were replaced by Honda as part of a recall, this condition exist before and after the replacement.)
- wheel balancing weights sliding against the caliper. NOPE, there are NO balancing weights of any kind at all.
- the rotors rubbing against the rotor dust shield. This one I haven’t entirely eliminated entirely as a possibility, but I have pushed the rotor dust shield away from the rotor, it certainly doesn’t appear to be rubbing against anything. I will have to check again.
Could it be the wheel bearings, but bad wheeling bearings generally don’t make this sound.
Here’s what I can do: I can the car on jack stands, and remove the front wheels, turn on the engine, and just observe the hub/rotors spinning… I guess this is next.
