    Its simple your cruise control switch needs adjusting a simple fix, if you are next down at the dealers or garage they can adjust it for you.

    Clicking can also be resolved by applying some Honda silicone grease, dealers probably have it. I think the grase itself is Shin Etsu (made for Honda). I had the clicking clutch thing on my 2011 Civic, some grease and all gone.

    I won't recommend Shin Etsu grease on the master cylinder rod it meant for soften up rubber seal and make them supple to the retain their shape after repeated use to ensure a good seal.

    Its not that good when it come to handing heat in stop and go traffic and repeated clutch pedal use. The Molly g rapid will make it cling onto the surface and has a higher threshold to heat.

    The clicking noise is always the cruise control switch and the grating noise is the CMC.
