We just purchased a 2003 CRV. There is an intermittent knocking noise coming from the right rear/side quadrant. It is a soft knock and is not rhythmic at all. It is not affected by braking, turning, accelerating or decelerating. It happens occasionally with spans of a minute more or less between knocks. Any help would be appreciated before we take it to a mechanic. Thank you

I would check the exhaust system to see it is not damaged or have any rubber hangers missing. I forget if there is a sway bar at the back of that year CRV but look under the CRV and see if anything is obviously detached or damage due to contact with road debrise.
