    Smile Astra Active 1.6, Strange knocking noise N/S/F

    Hi can anyone please help, I have just purchased my mums Astra Active on a 53 Plate, the car has only done 40.000 and has a great service history! problem is that when ever we drive down the road there is a knocking noise coming from the N/S/F I have jacked the car up and cant see anything strange or loose!

    I have jacked the car up and everything feels tight.

    The car has main dealer history and has had a fairly easy life! Im a bit stuck as I know own it and am a bit skint ! can anyone plesae help?

    Cheers

    Matt

    there will be a plastic link between the shocker and the anti roll bar it has a ball joint at either end
    when the car is flat on the road you will be able to feel movement if it is goosed

    It is the plastic rod that goes from the anti roll bar to the suspension strut. It will be that.

    They cost at most 15 quid
