    confused Clunking from O/S front at slow speed and reversing?

    Hi! I have a 2003 1.8 vectra c and a knocking has just started from my o/s front. Seems to be only when im driving slowly and with a bit of steer in either direction or reversing such as when im parking etc but is really noticable and just started suddenly. Anyone able to offer any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Steve.

    Hi Steve
    sound's like a drive shaft failure,jack up and spin wheel manually in each full lock,if you get the knocking mostly on full lock you are looking at a constant velocity joint failure in drive shaft.
    wellcome to the site.
