I wish there was more info out there as to what damage the springs can do. If they are truly a noise only hidnerance I could care less at this point. I just do not want to be stranded.My Civic contact left Honda a couple years ago.
At that time he said there were no countermeasures in place and none on the horizon.
So far as I know, any new parts from the Honda parts bin will be the same specification as when the car was built.
The noise IS just a noise and presents no detriment to the service life of the clutch, as I have been told.
It's all moot now anyway as, the 9th gen Civic (drive train) is 3 years in the rear view mirror now.
I've heard good things about David Macdavid in Frisco, and have personally had good luck with Honda Denton. However, I haven't had them try to look at this issue.I bought my 2013 Civic Si from Lute Riley Honda in Richardson TX in November 2015 with 44,000 miles on it. It was Certified Pre-owned. I paid $870 for the extended warranty because when I said I was worried about the clutch, the finance guy said it would cover it. (Yep, right there you can tell how bright I am, and how this will likely end.) At that time I was unaware of the Civic clutch noise phenomenon. I was just anxious about buying a used Si. Within a month it starting squealing. I went back to the dealer in February, and they said they “could not replicate it long enough to diagnose the cause.” Finally last fall the noise became more consistent, so I took it back. I provided links to the videos and testimonials of folks whose dealers stepped up for them. For those of you whose dealer took care of it for you, I’m jealous! Lute Riley Honda would not.
having this exact issue on my K24 ILX.Before tearing into your clutch please read this recent thread.
Untamed auto! Fixed my car. Clutch noise when moving...
Prior to this thread I had been suspecting loose or broken springs in the clutch plate. Now I have to advise anyone with this symptom to check or replace this tensioner pulley which is dirt cheap.
I hear you on the Honda complaints, see them a lot on the forums I follow.Been driving since I was about 12yo on the farm, bought my new civic in 2011. Very proud owner of my sunburst orange si. It was my 4th Honda all manual shifts. Then the Chewbacca noise started. I’m 63yo and never had a bad honda transmission. All of my Honda’s ran forever. Until I bought my 2012 civic si. My 1st new car ever. My next car we’ll be a Toyota.
