    Clunking noise????

    Don't really know what this is but it only happens when I'm driving happens inbetween braking and acceleration on the drivers side? Any ideas I thought it may have been my brakes but they seem fine??

    yeah my astra has it, is it around the drivers door area? if so it is the something something strap haha which is a common fault when breaking and accelerating as it knocks against the inside of the door.
    i know this because my car has just been in because of it, and also had new front brake calipers and rear shocks fitted.

    lol sorry, its the metal bar which goes into the door and stops it when its opened so far.
    i was told yesterday when you brake quite hard it will bang on the inside of the door, because i thought it was my anti rollbar bushes and so on.
