    Unhappy Knock from front end of my 2.0 DTi

    Hi guys,

    I have a bit of a stange knocking type noise coming from the front of my 52 plate DTi. The noise is a single knock, similar to tapping the dashboard hard.
    It only happens when I'm slowing down in traffic and happens when I first apply the brake, even before the car has started to come to a halt (ie just brusing the pedal enough to turn on the brake lights). It sounds like it is coming from higher up than the suspension in the engine bay.
    I have looked under the bonnet and I can't see or feel anything loose, any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Early vaecs had a problem with the springs seating in, it was fixed under warranty. Gave the same noise as you describe as I had mine done. Just needs a couple of plastic sleeves if it is that.
