    Default strange clunk sound from front only when reversing

    For a while now, I hear a strange clunk sound when I reverse and turn the steering wheel at the same time. The sound occurs only once and only when beginning to reverse. The strange thing is that it is louder when the car has been standing for a while like overnight. The car is only 3 years old and done under 30k

    Which car? Did you check your car's suspension and shocks?

    I have 17 inch wheels. I am wondering if I have managed to screw up my suspension because of them.

    its from the transmission actually

    suspension sounds should be audible in bumps / jumps / broken patches
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Hmm if it helps my 10k driven Altis does the same on reverse but it seems to come only when I apply the brakes sharply in reverse slight tuck sound but not on turning steering and like you only when car is been sitting for a few days

    No sound while moving forwards
    Brakes suspension etc all checked numerous times no issues

    Seems like a trait of local assembled civics and Altis here lol they like to knee moving forward

    I would suggest have a check with a crowbar of the suspension and steering components as well as engine or gearbox mounts incase there is a manufacturing defect but I think nothing will be wrong can be ignored
    I checked mine loads of times nothing wrong so I don't bother hardly ever hear it
