    The conductor seat in my Pilot (2003) is squeaking with every little
    bump I drive on.

    Also, when I back-up and break, I can hear a loud clunk coming from the
    rear. Then when I go forward, a similar noise happens the first time I
    brake. It's like if the whole break system was moving back and forth.

    Any similar experience or guess?

    I have seen this years ago on one of my old Saabs, having all disk
    The mounting bracket for the brake assembly was loose and whenever I
    changed from forward to going backward, I'd hear a 'clunk'. It was
    intermittent at first but got progressively worse. I didn't find it
    until much later until I took the brake assembly off and found it moved
    back and forth -- it took a little force to make it move, but it
    definitely moved. It unfortunately wore an elongated hole in the
    mounting bracket, making the problem more pronounced as time went by.

    I'd check the brake mounting. Make sure it is tight and torqued.
    Hope that steers you in the right direction.

    It's a common problem, addressed over at the Pilot section of

    There's a TSB that was issued for the driver seat. You can go look it
    up over at www.hondapilot.org and see if the issues addressed in it
    applies to you.

    As for the brake click/clunk, it also is discussed over at the same
    site. There's a TSB issued for it as well. Go look in the "Problem"
    section of the forum and you'll find the TSB's. But basically, almost
    all the Pilots have this "problem".

    I had more of a click, than a clunk under the same situation, so I
    had the TSB performed and for the most part, the noise has gone away,
    but it still happesn once in a while. No biggie.
