  • knocking noise... any ideas?

    Hey, my car has started making a knocking noise which appears to be coming from the nearside front wheel or around that area. Even sounds like it could be coming from somewhere underneath the passenger seat, outside the car if that makes sense.

    The only way to describe it is it's similar to the sound of the abs self check knocking sound when you first drive off, except its constant the whole time you are driving.

    It is more obvious when going over bumps, not really when turning in either direction, but the shock looks ok.

    I've done a search but can't really find anything similar.wondering if it could be a cv joint or something? Anyone have any ideas?

    Any help appreciated. Lee

      Cheers for the advice mate. Yeah its still under warranty, assuming they don't try and class it as wear and tear.

      Just a quick one, how urgent is it to get done? As I only get weekends really to get my car in to the garage and will be using it quite a bit this week.

      Cheers, lee
