Clicking Noise From Manual Transmission When Turning Right on Honda Civic

Certain manual transmissions can cause a clicking noise when turning right due to a reverse gear contacting other gears in the transmission. The transmission needs to be disassembled and new updated gears installed to stop the noise.

I just recently noticed this. I had studded snow tires on the front so I didn't think much of it at first, just thought it was the studs clicking on the pavement. But I've gotten new all-season tires and still hear the clicking, but only turning right.
