Strange Noise From Front Passenger Side

I just recently I began to here a strange , almost gringing/rubbing sound , coming from the front passenger sige of my 2006 Pilot. It is not a constant noise but I beleive it is getting worse. It sounds like something is rubbing but I checked underneath and saw nothing. Has anyone experienced the same thing? Anyone know what could possibly be causing this?

Does it occur all the time or at certain times? If so describe

Do you hear it when the Heater fan is off?

Have you checked the fluid levels of the car?

Now it seemd like I hear it almost everytime I drive that car. However, it comes and goes, definately not constant. I think i heard it while the heater was off yesterday. I have not checked the fluids. What fluid do you think would cause the noise?

I originally thought I heard the noise when I was turning (right turns specifically) but that theory was blown out of the water when I heard it yesterday as I was driving about 70 MPH on the GSP.

take a look at you cv boots at the end of the front axles. Any splits or signs of grease?
Is it a knocking sound? More noticeable when turning?

I will get under the car tonight and take a look at the CV boots. In the meantime, as I was closing the passenger side back door this morning I thought i heard something looked under the car and saw that the aluminum sheild around the exhaust pipe looked like it was loose. I reached under and was able to move it by hand. I think I may have found the problem. I will know more once I get the car up on the lift. I will keep you posted. Thanks for your suggestion! Much appreciated.

Sounds like you found the cause. Best part is that you might be able to secure it to the vehicle for the cost of a metal clamp.

Cheap cheap!

Yeah as rocky has brilliantly stated if it's what you described it's the shield for the cat converter I believe.

Basically get large hose/metal clamps and clamp it tight. Done deal.
