    Default Hollow Sounding Knocking???

    I have a REALLY annoying knocking coming from the front of the car, the knocking has a hollow sound and sounds like it could be the exhaust or radiator

    It only happens when the car jolts over bumps or hits pot holes

    Any ideas, as I have checked under the bonnet and cannot see anything obvious

    HELP!

    There was an issue with the radiator making a noise when you go over bumps, changing the radiator mounting bushes should stop the noise if that is where it is comong from. It is possible to be a susspention bush too, anti roll bar bushes are known to "play" up.

    When I had springs brake on Larisa,s Vectra B they tend to rattle, I must admit it does sound like an exhaust clamp being loose though.

    Possibly ****ed drop links, Take a wheel of & feel for play, to do a proper check of them you really need to remove at least one end..
