Just got a call from the Honda dealer today. They have been great! Honda is aware of the problem and it is only on the 2012 Pilots. R&D are working on the problem and have yet to come up with a solution. They are taking lists of customers names and once a solution ie: bracket or retrofit is made they will issue a TSB and get the trucks into service and fix the affe3cted trucks.

I am going through the same issue as we speak. I opened a case with Honda as well and they are stating it is under investigation. I heard it will be sometime before getting a fix if any.

I believed all 2012 Honda Pilot having this issues, so if you planing to buy think twice, Honda aware of the problem but let see how long until they found a solution

This noise will still bother you all winter long. Your defroster works with the AC on and not the AC off. So at start up while you are waiting for the windows to defrost the moise will still be there. It may also be magnified due to the lower outside temperature. I am still waiting for a fix for this problem as well. I do not want to go through arbitration with Honda but it may come to that.
