    no not parked on stones its getting worse now though.

    Engine mounts breaking up how would that be as some times when doing a 3 point turn I still get the noise and the engine is not moving?

    He means strut top mounts mate

    Sounds alot like the strut top bearings have dried up and are needing replaced

    Mine has started to make a bit of a clunk when turning the steering too, job for the holidays I guess
