rear tire clunking

So I have an intermittent clunking noise. It keeps rhythm with the speed of my tire from 3 moh to 35ish mph. Will happen when I go to work for 5-10 mins then won't happen for the last hour.

Decided to Jack it up and the wheel and rotor wobble back and forth when I grab the wheel at 6 o'clock and 12 oclock.

Seems serious. What do I need to replace?

Ew, sounds like it could be a wheel bearing gone bad.

But just for kix and giggles check your lug nuts.
It happens

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Already pricing wheel hubs lol

Lugnuts were first thing I checked.


I can't get one until tomorrow afternoon(called 4 stores) and I have to be in at work tonight and this is my only car

Crazy question, can my wheel come off??

Re: rear tire clunking

Yer wheel won't fall off or freeze up or nothing. But fix it asap. And keep trips as short as possible.

Re: rear tire clunking

So I went to change it and wtf is this


Isn't the stock rotor/etc and it seems the hub is behind the rotor and I can't get the rotor off

Re: rear tire clunking

That's your rotor... use a impact screwdriver from sears or local autoparts store and remove the two screws on the rotor. Of course don't forget to remove the caliper.


If it's the bearing, #2 is what you need. Honda Automotive Parts


For whatever reason, when I ordered mine from a local dealership- i had the additional spindle assembly with it... caused me a lot of confusion when others have mentioned they only had the hub. Only reason I mention it is because #9/10 (depending on which side) is the spindle of which the hub sits on, in the event yours is damaged (highly doubtful)

Honda Automotive Parts



You will need a large socket (32mm? idr exactly...) to remove the spindle nut that sits behind the center metal cap. Tie the caliper up with a ziptie and take your time if this is your first time working on this sort of thing....

^^ this.
Is what Wings is talking about. Around $20. While there grab ya a caliper tool...not brake caliper, but a measuring tool to determine the size of the bolt he's talking about. I know the front wheel uses 36mm but don't know what the back wheel is...hopefully 32...
