    Default Clunk from O/S/F when going over pot hole??

    Hi Guys,

    My wife was driving to work in our Signum 1.9cdti 54 reg and going up our road she heard a loud bang from the front of the car, she thought she had driven over something in the road so stoped the car had a look but nothing, she carried on driving to work and now the car is making a clonking noise from the O/S/F wheel area everytime you drive over a small pot hole, But when you are driving real slow say around a car park and it a pot hole it's hardly noticeable.

    What do you think it is???

    PS the car still seems to drive ok apart from the above?

    Thanks
    Mark
