    Default Unidentified Knocking

    Hi,

    My car developed an underside knocking on Saturday. It's definitely front end, sounds possibly drivers side, sounds around my feet area.
    It's a loudish knock, can be heard over bumps in the road and for example, on reversing, as the front end of the car bumps up a dropped kerb it makes the knock/crack noise.

    Took it in for it's MOT today and said to my mechanic there must be a suspension bush gone. He couldn't find a thing, no play in anything, MOT passed, and i know he's thorough. Great on MOT, but still the distinctive knock!

    What could this be please? I know the car is safe, but it doesn't sound like it is

    Cheers
    Paul.

    Can you get somebody to listen from the outside whilst making the noise?
    It is a pain to remove the plastic liners inside the wheel arches, but thats where the problem might be.
    For example, the power steering hides behind the drivers wheel arch liner, altho' it's in front of the wheel.
