  • clunk click noise when pulling off

    theres a faint clunk click noise when i first start the car and pull away. this only happens the once after starting the car but does it wether its hot or cold.

    it does it every time which lead me to believe it supposed to happen, but i just want to know what it is :?

    its as similar sound to stones flicking off the tyres and hitting the plastic wheel arch liner. it sounds like its coming from the drivers wheel arch

    any suggestions?

    cheers

    there was an odd thread on this.
    is it not the a.b.s doing a self test?

      that would make perfect sense.

        It's perfectly normal so nothing to worry about.

        I have heard it is the ABS system but I've also heard it could be the ventilation system so I'm not sure exactly what it is.

          Its the ABS self test/activating - it does it when you hit 15mph for the first time per engine start. Our Corsa does it too.

            15 mph has probably hit the nail on the head.

            i nkew it wasnt anything serious (well hoped) just wanted to know what it was

                  Not entirely sure to be honest, but it sounds like it test fires the actuators in the ABS unit.
