    astra h 1.7 cdti knocking nsf

    hi guys
    ive got a knocking on nsf on my astra.
    ive checked the obvious -
    driveshafts
    ball joints
    steering rack
    anti roll bar links
    subframe
    wheel nuts
    wheel bearing
    but there is no play in them
    sounds like a ball joint noise.
    it seems to be worse on an uneven road when turning slighty right, but cant find it. any ideas?
    recently its had a ecu and abs moduel on it, but there not loose.

    after checking yesterday for a few hrs of stripping bits down and testing
    I found out the shocker is loose in the front strut, but the bounce test is ok.
    rang the vx dealers, its 800 miles out of warranty and they wanting £73 each

    I think I might have the exact same problem, an occasional knocking noise to be heard from the NSF when travelling over minor bumps in our good ole english roads, and she's just been serviced
    Vauxhall won't do anything under warranty if it can be avoided as they are in finacial difficulties. I was speaking to one mech who has advised that VX are even rejecting turbo warranty claims on the basis that the owners aren't warming their cars up before driving off.

    yeah it sounded like a anti roll bar link but if you pull outwards on the shocker there was movemnt in it.
    i ended up goin to vx main dealer and consting £116 for shocker and top plastic bearing.
    the dealers have been great under warranty
    they changed

    turbo
    ecu
    abs moduel
    servo twice
    master cylinder
    new radio ariel
    front crank shaft oil seal
    fly wheel
    battery
    radiator
    air con pump
    cim moduel
    and its only done 61k on a 56 plate

    it had just run out of warranty when shocker had gone
