It is a real shame that this issue can't be fixed. The car has been released almost 3 years ago and there is nothing that the dealer can do. My warranty will expire soon. I am very disappointed by Honda.

Have you actually been to your dealer about it ? If you've reported it during the warranty and given them a chance to fix it, you'll be in a stronger position if it recurs outside the warranty.

My position:
1. Noise became obvious during early 2017, transmission mount was replaced Aug 17.
2. Noise recurred during 2nd quarter of 2018.
3. Dealer swapped the mount out for one from a demonstrator that doesn't have the problem in June 18. No recurrence to date.
4. Dealer decided they need to replace the swapped mount onto the demonstrator so they can sell it, so they've decided to fit a new one to mine anyway; car is in with them today to have that done.

I think the dealer's doing all they can to help. The Honda mothership tells them that mine is the only case they know of (but you & I & the guys over on the FitFreak forum know different !). They won't commit themselves about what the position will be if the problem recurs after warranty expiry, but I will argue strongly that it's an "original sin" problem that I've given them every chance to resolve.

None of which enhances Honda's reputation.

We had/have this problem too.  Engine mount replaced.  Car judders when reversing, think something else has failed.  Gear change is a dog, always has been.  We are on our third Jazz and I'm starting to hate this car.

I certainly wouldn't recommend one

If this is your third, the first two couldn't have been too bad. Looks like you have a duff one this time.

Hi Posters,

I had mine fixed recently with the same problem as you all described.

I had the noise replicated when the mechanic was sitting in the passenger seat. He asked me to apply gas and the back of and the apply gas. Basically the noise and judder noise was repeatedly reproducible. Then mechanic says it  is the exhaust system may be loose. He took the car onto the ramp and tightened something. He then says I also need a new gearbox mount.
But when I drive the car home the noise has gone. To me it is a loose exhaust system that he has tightened. The following weeks I also had the mount replaced. Noise has not returned...

So for you guys which had the mount replaced,  and if still have problem. Try and tighten the exhaust system.

Nothing new under the sun, my 1960s mini had a clunky exhaust due to engine movement. In fact you could get a bracing strut kit to attach the cylinder head to the bulkhead.

And you can still get them, maybe you will be able to get them for a Jazz in 50odd years. :-)

Hi Twd99, and welcome to the forum.

In your case if the noise disappeared after only having the exhaust adjusted, then that sounds like the mount didnít need doing, but I suspect Hondaís standard response now for this sort of noise is to replace the mount anyway. Glad youíve got it fixed.

In my case the dealer did indeed suspect the exhaust and tried his best to prove thatís what it was. However his conclusion was that the exhaust was OK and the issue was the transmission mount. Thatís now been replaced for the second time and Iím in ďwait and seeĒ mode, noting that last time it took several months to recur. Hopefully thatís fixed it, but weíll see.

I hope the chance of two faulty replacement mounts is negligible.

Pedantsís corner: actually, the probability of having two faulty mounts is 100%, because Iíve had two fail (the original factory-fitted one and the one fitted last year). Iím hoping that itís the probability of failure of a 3rd one thatís negligible. :D

The key is "replacement mounts", no reference to the original duff one. :-)

No problem, hopefully Honda have given their mount supplier a good kicking and there are no more duff ones in the supply chain.

Love king at the gearbox mount shown in other  website:
https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/3rd-generation-2015/94249-gk-mtx-clutch-transmission-clicking-noise-long-rant-2.html

Suggesting that the bolts is coming loose that's why it's making a creaking noise. I thought NK it might be worth applying some locktite (nuts / bolts adhesive) when tight down the bolt to prevent it becoming loose due to vibration.

Look like cars only experience noise when they accrued the mileage. My didn't make any noise at 7k miles. It only started at 10k miles.
