    Default Clunking from Front Passenger Side

    Good Afternoon All,

    I have been experiencing a problem with my facelift vectra c.

    Goin over speed bumps theres a like crunching sound. Also steering was very wavy, loose.

    Took it to a garage and they were unable to find a fix for all.

    They said the bushes were worn on the wishbones so both have been replaced. £240 :-(

    I have also had both the rear trailing arms replaced £160 but that was last november

    Both the drop links and the ARB bushes have been checked and apparently they are fine. For the cost of £10 for ARB bushes i was gonna ask them to just replace them anyway.

    The steering has improved since the wishbones have been fitted.

    The crunch/clunking sound is not so loud now, but is still there.

    The garage seem to think its the shocks. Unfortunately i have no idea. My local garages arent much use but this is about the only one i trust.

    I dont really have time to take it anywhere else. I know there supplier is Parkers.

    Any ideas of anything else that could be wrong. and what sort of cost i'm looking at for two front shocks. They will only buy from parkers so i'm not really sure.

    To top this all off, i lost the car all last week making work hell.

    Driving home from the garage today the service light came on. So car is booked in for service monday

    Any ideas, suggestions or help would be great!

    Your profile says your car is 2003 so its not a facelift. If your profile is wrong then you car still may be under warranty 3 years or 60k which ever one comes sooner.

    confused Noise

    Same here i asumed that it was perhaps the black plastic skirting on the front as the noise mine makes as you go over a speed bump is dependant on how hard i go over them. Have been known to get a clunking noise from front passenger side aswell but only happened a couple of times and then never happened again.

    ok car went in for service yesterday.

    Turns out spark plugs haven't been replaced in the 5 years of the car been on the road. and the oil was nearly paste.

    They happily showed me. So glad i had the service.

    Car seems to be running a lot quicker. and smoother.

    Garage have said it could be the anti roll bar, but because of it raining they are going to check it on saturday.

    Apparently removing the drop links, or undoing part of it, then driving over the speed bumps can indicate if that is the problem. They are also going to check the radiator bushes.

    I'll let you all know saturday.

    Nick
