Bought a 2012 wrx a few weeks ago. Noticed that first thing in morning after backing out of driveway and then turning and going forward there is a minor click/clunk. Feels like its in driveline somewhere. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? It just happens one time and that's it--around 4-5 mph.
When my AC is on for about 20 minutes, I get a pop/crackle out from behind my cup holder. I have zero idea what that is either. But as long as it doesnt make my car spew oil on the ground, It can make all the noises it wants too.
Don't feel bad or too worried. I have 2012 also and it does it also every time from reverse to going forward.
My guess is the play in the CV joint when going from one direction to the other.
Ok, cool. I wasn't too worried tbh -- I mostly just wanted to know if anyone knew exactly what it is...for curiousity's sake. Anyway, I love the car a lot. 3 weeks old and I have over 2,000 miles already! I take the long route home each day... =)
Just bought a "12 wrx this past weekend as well and noticed the same exact thing.
Also on mine i will be cruisin in 3rd or 4th nothing crazy an periodcially ill here a lighter thunk every now and then?
