Honda Element Rattle and Honda CR-V Rattle Fix

If you have a Honda Element Rattle or a Honda CR-V Rattle and the noise is coming from the rear of the vehicle near the rear differential, chances are you’re looking at a worn Rear Differential Dynamic Damper.

The Honda Element Rattle and Honda CR-V Rattle happen when the rubber bushing wears out and the two parts contact each other making a metal-to-metal rattle.
