    Default Clunk/bang when starting

    Hoping someone might have an idea what this is. I have a 2008 1.8 VVT Vectra and over the last couple weeks have noticed a clunk or bang noise when the car fires up after turning the key.

    It doesn't sound like its from the engine bay, but more like its from the rear of the car or maybe underneath me but I'm sure its outside the vehicle.

    Its only when the car starts after turning the key and it seems to be pretty much every time.

    Any ideas?

    Just went outside to start it again and no clunk so it seems to do it only from cold.

    I've noticed this noise since the cold weather.

    Would I not notice this every time I started the car though?

    I rang the dealer who said to try to listen where it comes from by someone else starting the car which I'll do later.

    He said that they will look but will need it overnight as it only seems to do it from cold or rather, first thing in the morning.
