    Default clutch replaced but now extreme banging!!

    Hi as above, ive had the clutch, pressure plate and hydraulic bearing done by a local garage but as i drove away have noticed very bad loud banging every tiny bump on road, like ive no shock absorbers! Or the front axels dropping off! I jus caught the garage guys who was closing up who told me to bring it straight back in morn and they will check it out. What does it sound like? Its makin me feel physically sick ive paid for this to my car! Although they told me not to worry and they will sort it.

    So if its not tightened up properly, this wud cause front end havoc? Everytime theres a wave in the road or any un smooth road surface it sounds like wings are smashing off and axels on floor! Wud the noises be so bad if sub frame wasnt tight enough!?

    just think all your wishbones arb bar all of that is bolted to the subframe and as you saying is a big bang this would do it it could be loads of things i bet like something lose knocking but subframe would be easy to miss id say as it looks tight when you look at it but there not could be loads of things mate really but i saying subframe as that lose will make a big clunk could even be a droplink gone arb buses gone anything

    is it over every little bump or just big ones??

    just thinking subframe as you had new clutch have to half undo drivers side and undo fully the pass side is why i say subframe
