Honda Civic Type R FK8 2017
Hi guys,

Bit of a strange one. But has anyone else experienced the issue below.

I have a 2017 civic type r fk8 and whenever im in neutral and i slightly press and apply the brake pedal and let off the brake pedal, i hear an audible tapping noise from drivers side engine bay.

Seem to hear it more clearly when parked in a car park or near a wall. I guess due to the echo.

I have recently taken the car to Honda and one of the technicians heard the noise and said that it was emitting from the timing chain area. Most likely rubbing on the plastic cover etc. But nothing to worry about.
Its been booked in for further inspection next week.

Any thoughts from anyone on here who may have a heard a similar noise?
Or maybe test and see if they can reproduce the same noise?


Any advise and help on this would be much appreciated.


Cheers.

Hello, my 2018 civic type r also developed this problem around 6500 miles.

A loud knocking noise develops from the valve cover by the timing chain only when the brake/ e-brake is engaged. Really noticeable when the car is at idle.

My car is currently at the dealership and they are in contact with Honda. Is anyone else having this problem? My car is completely stock, no modifications whatsoever.

Any help or input is greatly appreciated.
