Hello again my friends,
I have a noise coming from the clutch in first gear and reverse (MT). It starts when the car begins to move and it goes away after the full relise of the pedal. In the rest of the gears it doesn’t to it, only from stand still leave. The previous owner told me that he changed the clutch recently (that was 5 months ago when I bought the car. I’ll try to record the sound and attach it. So the previous owner lied to me or he used cheap parts.... i’ve done around 6.000 km since i bought the cr-z and i’m not such a bad driver to destroy a clutch that quickly :))

i made a video here (it’s uploaded on my youtube channel, I couldn’t find another way)

If it's happening when pressing on or releasing the pedal, it's the throw out bearing. Some of the cheap ones that come with kits really suck. That's why I always suggest oem when it comes to these types of bearings. Sadly, you have to pull the transmission to replace it.

Thank you so much. As long as it solves the problem, i will do it.

FIXED! While i was at my mechanic to change the clutch fluid, he told me that the clutch pedal engages to low (and it’s not pressing on the pressure plate enough )and thats why sometimes hooks when putting into gear and makes that noise, so he adjusted my pedal and it’s solved!💪🏼

Costin is this problem still fixed or did it comeback? I heard something similar in my CR-Z. It happen only on 1st gear when accelerating from standstill. Sometimes it happen more often, sometimes there's no sound at all

This video below shows better when this noise appear

I did some research through Honda forums an it look like this is more common problem in the Accord models. People there suggest, that honda didn't put enough grease on the clutch pilot bearing bushing p/n 22103-rna-004. Did you guys discover similar kind of noise while accelerating from standstill?

After i did the clutch fluid change and adjusted the pedal everything was working fine. Putting the car in any gear was smooth, no more hooks and the noise was gone, but after a few days the noise came back, it is less noticeable now (it can not be recorded because the engine noise it’s louder and it covers it) and the car runs with no issues. For the moment i can live with it and i am planning to change the clutch in the future and i will attend it then.
The clutch pilot bearing bushing....sounds like an easy fix but it hard to get to it.

Sounds easy but the gearbox need be dropped to fix it. Today finally I've managed to make a video how does it sound in my CR-Z. Seriously...I've tried maybe twenty times to record it and every time it didn't appear and when I stopped filming it did. So I used a hidden camera :D

Yes, that’s the same noise i have. I was planning to live with it until I change the clutch but you got me curious with that bearing bushing. I will try to grease it next weekend

Quick update. In my case the noise is gone after doing 500-mile trip. Before I drove mostly short trips and after driving for a bit longer it finally disappeared ;)

Sorry guys its not that easy take it from someone that has, tr I ed it all the new clutch pack flywheel pressure plate throwout bearing , I spent a hole Lotta my hard earned money , replaced it all only to find that same f ing noises the problem unsolved. Those transmissions should have been recalled cut that is where the problem lies ,the trans?ission, the bearings inside of the transmission ,save yourself a bunch of time and money and just go straight to it take the tyranny out and fix the real problem ,have the tyranny rebuilt, I'm just saying
