    Knocking Noise

    Hi all

    My wife's new coupe has a small problem, we've heard a knocking noise coming from under or to one side of the car.. We've had the exhaust checked out thats ok.... But it only happens when the car travels over a rough suface (road)..

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    try the front anti-roll bar links mate, there was a knocking coming from the front passenger side of my hatch which i thought was the exhaust, checked it out and it was fine, went in for an mot, failed on excessive wear on the front anti-roll bar drop link, it was replaced and the knocking was cured. think they are 15 quid a side but not 100% sure.
    Theres an idea for you mate...

    yeah mate i wasnt saying it didnt, all i meant was i didnt notice any difference in steering or drive etc, it was only noticed when pointed out by the mot tester, see my point, lol i can sometimes be as clear as mud! lol

    my old man had this on his omega, turned out to be the bar that fits next to the strut having a crack in it. not sure what this is called, could be the anti-roll bar not sure though. vague but could help.

    Hi

    I took the car to the local garage, they have checked the anti-roll bar this seemed ok, so it may be a loose suspesion leg.......
