    Default rattling noise

    I`ve got a ratling/bumping/knocking type of cound when i`m taking off (just when i on the biting point) it not there when im driving just when i`m stationary and start to move. sounds like its coming from the drivers side front wheel area. any ideas what it could be?

    thanks in advance!!

    what is the drop link mate? i`m not very knowledgable about the mechanics of cars. it sounds like somethings loose, was thinkin of gettin underneath it with the adjustable spanner and trying to tighten everything i see

    it's a suspension component mate. the drop link fits between suspension leg and anti-roll bar. they aren't usually very expensive.

    to be honest i'd run the car into somewhere like national and get them to determine what the problem is. 99.9% of the time they'll check it over for free and tell you what the problem is. then it's just a case of DIYing it or phoning around for the best quote to get it sorted
