    Default Civic 2012 dashboard noise

    Guys, need some expert advise. I have a 2012 civic (old shape). Around 25k on the odo.

    Somehow, the left side dashboard has become loose and makes a hideous tik tik noise of sorts. If I push it in then it somehow stops and if I let it go then it's back to the same noise.

    I'm hesitant to show it to Honda : last thing I want is the entire dash taken apart. What do you gentlemen propose ? Thanks!

    Common problem in 2006-2012 Honda civic.
    Solution to the problem : https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/per...-civic-1-8-a-4
    Read post #80 and #82 and yes whole dash needs to be taken apart. Go to 3s dealership and get it fixed.

    I am experiencing the same noise.
    Plus when you open the sun roof inner slider. The noise in the ceiling increases inside the car

    My 8th gen civic also had this problem
    And it increased after I got low profile 17s for my car
    This is normal with our local cars in fact !
    Corolla from 1998 to 2011 all gens
    Margalla 1997
    kia spectra 2003
    civic from 2004 to 2014
    swift 2013
    My all local brandnew cars had this problem
    Weird tik tik noise coming from somewhere
    Civics are better than above mentioned cars but still have this problem
    Thanks to our roads
    My new civic has a really quite cabin done 12k kms now but now I notice slight tik tik on bumpy roads from roof moulding near sunroof although tht is very slight but obviously irritating !

    These noises are very slight, but the owner is listens to these noise more than any other person in the car.
