    Default Rear Knoking

    I have a 54 19 cdti estate and recently I have been having a knocking noise from the rear nearside. The noise isnít all the time and seems to stop whilst braking and for a sort time after. I havenít had time to investigate it properly yet but was wondering if anyone else had the same issue and could tell me what to look for.
    My first thoughts are wheel bearing?

    A wheel bearing would make a rhythmic 'grumbling' noise, I should have thought. It sounds like your rear anti-roll bar mounting bushes might need replacement. I may be wrong. They are only something like £6 for the pair, as far as I know. I need to replace mine, as well as my front ones. Paul

    If it stops when braking, it'll be your rear pads. Mine done it. Sorted by removing the pads, cleaning the calliper around where the pads sit, and re-seating the pads. Might be worth changing them if they are low

    Right just checked the rear I think it is coming from and there is no play when you shake the wheel but when striped the brakes down I've found that the locating lugs on the piston face don't match the ones on the pad! Has Someone at some point put the wrong pads in? They're where done just before I bought it 4-5 months ago.

    They'll be aftermarket pads. Same with mine. Slightly different fit. Best use OEM ones

    Just look and they have put the pads with the lugs on one side and the one with the springs on the other. Have you changed yours?

    I've put my cheapie euro car parts ones back in for now. Used lots of copperslip on re-assembly and cleaned callipers thoroughly on re-assembly. Rattle has just about gone. Can barely hear it only if you go over rough ground.

    so after stripping the nearside last night and finding the pad are put in wrong I had to build it back up the same way as I needed the car last night but there has been no knocking either last night or today. Tomorrow I will strip both sides down and do it correctly!

    Thanks for the advice its much appreciated!
