    Mine has just started making a noise from the back of the car, but mine is more of a rattling noise sounds like the suspension because I've had my exhaust looked at.
    Wouldn't mind also finding out people ideas of what the noise may be.

    I know its so strange it only really does it when im going slow and it does my head in becuase im thining can other people hear that.
    i have had some people take alook at the exhaust too but they could not find anything wrong it was not creaking when they shook the exhaust so im confused

    Location: preston Blimey, didn't think I'd get such a response, anyhow back end of car needs to go on ramps for access. The knocking noise comes from the 2 bushes that hold the rear anti roll bar in place.The ones that are bolted to the rear sub frame. The bushes wear slightly and the bar also wears slightly so replacement bushes won't necessarily fix the problem as the bar is slightly undersize. If you grab hold of the bar while under the car and waggle it about you can feel the bar has radial play in the bushes. The bushes are held on by a 'c' type bracket and 1 torx bolt, access is good. To rectify mine all I did was wrap the anti roll bar shaft with some thin rubber matting I have got in the garage approx 3mm thick, fit the bush back over that then fitted the clip to hold it all in place.Yes use old bushes, a bit of a git getting the bracket back on and vaseline is handy to allow it to slip over the bush without grabbing it but worth struggling as the knocking completely cured!

    Its a real pain mate.
    Have you had alook at the screws on the boot to see if it makes a difference when you tighten them up?

    Nah i havnt yet. It seems to be related to the brakes. The clunky and squeezing stops when i brake so going to get them looked at next week when the MOT is due.
