    Default 2003 2.2 SRI Vectra: Intermitant Knocking Noise

    Hi,

    Got a strange noise coming from the drivers side front and rear (not at the same time). This is totally intermittent and happens on all variety of roads, sometimes you will not hear it for a few days then it will do it several times consecutively?

    It almost sounds like a spring is knocking out of place? I've looked over the components and everything looks fine, any ideas?

    Cheers!

    If a coil spring has broken, the bit that has broken off sometimes sits in the bottom of the strut until it bounces out, it makes a noise! If you feel the coil spring at the bottom, it should be square, if its jagged, then its broken and both front will need replacing.

    Exhaust rubbers missing.

    Suspension arm bushes worn and or other suspension components.
