    Noise

    My wife reports a noise "like jingling keys" from the left front of her 1999 Honda CRV (150,000 miles, new transaxle) that comes and goes. I haven't heard it.

    I can't see anything loose.

    Any suggestions as to what to check?

    Is it at all speeds? Does it do it more when you are turning, braking, or any other special circumstances? I know this probably has nothing to do with it, but have you checked the lug nuts? Does it have hub cap deals, are they on tight? How did the brakes feel?

    One thing that I've found to make a similar noise, albeit not often, is the clamps on the half shaft. Look at the boots on the half shafts and make sure the clamps on each end of the rubber are tight. After that, I'd check the bekt tensioner. Beyond that, I'd have to hear it to make a better guess.

    I am going to guess brakes, especially if the noise goes away or reduces when braking. Many brake pads are designed to make noise when they wear down and what gives it away is if the noise changes, reduces or completely goes away while braking. IOW, the brakes might be worn only to the point that the noise is intermittent. If this is the case, the noise will get MUCH more common and louder as you drive more, but could still be perfectly quiet when you brake.
