    Default 'Loose' rattle type knocking noise

    Hi all.

    This noise has gotten progressively worse over the past 2-3k miles so I think it's time to address it.

    I can only describe it as a 'loose' rattley type knocking.

    It happens when im sitting still if i'm lucky, but mainly at low speeds up to around 30mph (May just be engine/road noise means I can no longer hear it after then)

    I think it comes from the front end, the Mrs thinks its from the rear.

    Its not a constant 'Knock..Knock' noise, it can be 'knock knock knock....knock' etc, Usually quite quick knocks.

    I thought it might be top mounts, but it doesnt make it any different if I turn the steering wheel. We noticed at traffic lights the other day it stopped & started with the brakes, but then when i was going along I put the brakes on & it still did it.

    I cant find anything loose. Absolutely stumped. It passed it's MOT in December too.. then again as me & Richard found out Saturday, it passed with an almost bald inner edged tyre too...

    Cheers

    Ah fantastic, i'll spray some WD40 on them & check for movement so I can at least rule it out.
