07 Type S Knock or Clunk From Rear Suspension

As of July 20, 2007
Acura Service Bulletin


There is a knock or clunk coming from the rear suspension. The noise can sound like loose items in the trunk or on the rear shelf.

Cause:

One or both of the rear damper assemblies are faulty.

It must be Honda. I did what I always do, which is copy the preceding month's data and then change the month code and the actual month, and it still doesn't work.

Maybe there's something in it they didn't want to get out, or whatever.

I'll check it occasionally and see if it comes back or if I can find out what's wrong.
