    Default knocking when putting power down

    been getting progressivley worse now! when i put my foot down abruptly there is a distinct knocking coming from some part of the dive train as if something is loose. To me it feels like a gearbox mount or something similar. i will have a look when it stops raining

    just wondering if anyone else has had problems with the gearbox mounts?

    have you had any major work done on the car recently??

    are wheel nuts all tight?

    i'd take wheels off and give a visual to all the parts you can see. Check for wear. I'm sure someones posted on here about how to check for wear / tear on running gear both front and rear.

    that should exclude some of the more obvious issues

    stands a chance with the front/back mountings theyre an absolutely shocking design and I've changed quite a few now (including my own), should be easy enough to spot if they've gone.

    As dave said the norm culprit is th gearbox mount that wears and when you floor it the loose mount takes up the back lash hence the clunk but def needs replacing as it outs strain on the rest of the drivetrain
