Hello there I have a 2001 SH prelude with less than 97,000 kms and has a vtech engine. It also has cold air intake and I guess a fancy exhaust (bought like that) When I did an inspection with the dealer, they said it was the left ball bearing, which I found hard to believe, another person with a new car, was recommended same thing, ironic? I feel that this car is very noisy and sometimes I just feel the handle of the hand break and that vibrates, when I park my car, for about 5-7 minutes it makes a ticking noise. I had asked my bf what that was all about. He doesnt know, so I am asking you, the repair gurus to help me out and recommend what I need to do to rectify this situation.
Thanks so much and have a great day! :Oops:

oops I may have forgot to mention that for the bearing, they were asking me to fix the front left bearing,
i guess ofcourse when you press on the race, and the odometer raises, thats when the noise also gets louder
Do you

I take it there are two issues here. One when the car is moving and another when it sits still. Right?

Don't be surprised if one of the rear bearings is out. They are not a great design in my opinion. Just replaced a rear set in a 2000 accord.

The ticking noise when sitting could be a valve but it could be the injectors making their clicking sound. Is your hearing real good?
