    help i'm getting a knocking noise from nearside rear when going over slight bumps in the road,thought it was the parcel shelf so got myself into the boot for a listen while missus was driving ,deffo from that general area. I just done the rear control arms last month what could it be now?? I checked my exhaust and that is fine...thanks

    Ive got the same noise from the same side as you and have had it for a while but its not got any worse. Someone said its probably the control arm but i need to get it checked out. I noticed you have already done this job, can i ask was it expensive?

    Cheers Scott

    Have you tried pulling the rubber up slightly where the boot catch is , had the same issue, that resolved it

    Thanks for that, but my noise is exactly how describe yours and sounds just like the parcel shelf bouncing and its doing my head in too. I will get someone to have a look and report back. Sorry to have been no help but your not alone with this one.
