    Astra Coupe Knocking Noise

    Hello All,

    There's a strong knocking noise coming from the front left of my 02 Astra Coupe and can be felt through the steering too. Had it up on a lift plenty of times, first time we checked it all that we could find any way gone was the front left drop link so i got a pair of new ones and fitted them. Still knocking!..Up on the lift again, checked all the bushes etc, everything seemed fine, took off the shocks and the left one had seen better days so got a new pair of shocks and fitted them. Still knocking!..Up on the lift yet again, noticed that the front gearbox mount was broken so got a new one and fitted it. Still knocking!

    Lads this is driving me mad, anyone have any suggestions on what it might be?

    Thanks
    Sean

    Had something done to the front brakes latley?, might sound silly but check the pad retaining spring's are fitted.

    I had a similar thing going on with my car, turn's out the pad retaining spring had popped off and the pad was rattling about, surprisingly loud!

    Not a bad suggestion because that is where the sound seems to be coming from, thanks for that will check it out tomorrow,
