    Default Front driver side rattle

    Noticed a clunky rattling noise coming from the front drivers side when driving on rough tarmac.

    It happen more when the car drops into a bump like a pothole for example rather than when bumping up if that makes sense.

    First thing I did was lift the bonnet to see if I had left somthing like a ratchet or spanner under there, as thats the sort of rattling noise its making.

    Any ideas what this could be? (and whats the best way to check to find out)

    All help appriciated


    PS. Why is it that the problems always start to apear the few weeks before its due its MOT

    Today is the first day Ive had a chance to have a look at the car. I gave the spring and droplinks a good shake, but all seems solid, then put my hand into the tray where the spring sits and found a nice big chunk of spring
