Download Creaking From A-Pillar When Turning Left 2002–03 CR-V – If owners of ’02 CR-Vs are complaining of a creaking from the A-pillar when turning left, the problem may be the right front engine mount on the cam chain side. If the rubber in the mount is misadjusted or faulty, it can make a creaking, ticking, or spot-weld-like noise that seems to be coming from the base of the front passenger’s A-pillar. To check if the engine mount is causing the noise, hook up a STEELMAN® ChassisEAR™ diagnostic tool (T/N JSP-SM06600) to the engine mount, and duplicate the noise. If the noise is the loudest at the right front engine mount, loosen all of the engine mount bolts, and retighten them according to the tightening sequence on page 5-11 of the 2002–03 CR-V S/M. If the noise remains, replace the rubber part of the right front engine mount.
