    Default Knocking Noise?

    I drive a 2.2 dti sri vectra and I have recenly seem to be getting a knocking noise but can;t pinpoint where it is coming from. I think it is underneath the car.

    Does anyone else know if this could be a common fault? Any suggestions would be great to hear.

    I have have the following questions to ask.

    Can the 03 plate vectra's be programmed for autolock closed whilst driving off over 5mph or is this not available on this model.

    thanks
    Akeem

    if you do a search for autolocking, you'll find many threads on how to enable it on your car....

    the knocking noise..is it over speed bumps, or just while driving?..it it over manhole covers?...

    Default thanks for replying

    The knocking noise happens when going over speed bumps and pot holes and also when driving on the straight and only seems to happen occasionally seems to be coming at random places underneath the car. I am thinks of getting a full service with vauxhall (any ideas on cost ?)

    Also does anyone know where I can get some parts cheap (based in stevenage)?

    thanks mate.

    the knocking is more than lkely the antiroll bar drop links..dead easy to change yourself with a 17mm spanner and an 18mm socket.. ( they are the bar joining the antiroll bar to the suspension strut and their balljoints wear and knock like a nutter)..they only cost £12 each off ebay, so not a major expense..

    As for the VX service, Don't.
    Take it to a good independant garage instead and save a whole heap of money. Most VX dealers charge £95-£100 an hour labour, an independant will be 1/2 that.

    Look in the yellow pages for your local motor factors.. they will be your cheapest source of parts to keep it on the road..

    links to ebay auctions for some anti roll bar links..avoid any wording on there about two different lengths.. VX list only one for your year of car.
