    Default can SOMEONE help with knocking...PLEASE

    Hi....i have a signum 1.9cdti 150 '05...for quite a while now i have had knocking at drivers front wheel area....sometimes i can drive over speed bumps and not hear it, yet another i can drive over the tiniest ripple in the road and i get this horrible metalic knock from the front (sometimes i am starting to hear it from the left side too)...the thing is that i have had it looked at 3 times (2 different garages) and it has not long gone through the MOT...no one can find the problem ''it all looks fine''.....i am worried that the only way to to rectify the problem is to wait for a wheel to fall off...but i dont want that as i also tow a caravan....i have also had the arb drop arms off and they seem ok....anyone had a similar problem...any ideas??

    Mine squeaks all the time. I think it started like yours, just over ripples but now does it over speed bumps, pot holes etc...

    Like you noone can find a problem. There is no play anywhere and the springs are not broken. I wouldn't worry too much, just keep checking for play. Mine passed its MOT like this.

    The rad mounts used to cause this too. Not sure if they revised the design so worth a look.

    Mine sometimes gives off a metallic 'ping' from the front if i go over speed humps or a very uneven surface. I NEVER go fast over these and have checked for anything amiss but found nothing.

    Possibly brake pads rattling in the carrier. If it is this you wont hear it when your are braking.
