    Angry more expense on my car

    after having to pay £49 to nationwide autocentre for a diognostic charge on the knocking on my car and they also said inner cv joint,well the joint was making a knocking noise but not the main loud knocking,this is still going on,i had a search and i can hear it,i can feel it but i cannot find where it is coming from,what i did find was the right side coil spring is broke,it was not obvious in visual inspection as the plastic sleeve was holding the lower part of the spring in place,the knocking noise seems to be coming from the passenger side and evn my father has heard it coming from the passenger side,i have stripped the passenger suspension down and i have found nothing wrong,the noise can be replicated by rocking the steering,by pulling off and while driving the car backwards and then applying the brakes,i have already paid out over £200 on parts (lucky i get a good discount) now i have to pay out nearly £200 on more parts with no guarantees of fixing the car,i have not yet checked the front part of the subframe but the rear part of the subframe,rack and arms are all tight and i have checked for movement with a large screwdriver or crowbar and have found nothing wrong,the knocking is getting worse but nothing is obvious

    this knocking i have which is coming to the left/central of the car,could the DMF do this? it only does this when pulling off,i know i have a broken spring which is causing some noise but the spring that is broken is on the right side and there are no noises coming from that side of the car,this knocking is now getting annoying and so dar i have found nothing wrong that could cause it.please help as i dont know where else to look

    the knocking can be heard in this video,more so mid way,my phone was on my passenger front footwell

    I think he has just put the camera on the passenger seat and driven round, could it be the radiator mounts?

    the scary thing to me is the fact you have a broken spring and your still driving it. I would get that fixed and then so to the other....imo.

    i only played a video as mobile phone recordings are not easy to convert for use on the internet where video is easy,the phone was on the footwell

    i will have another look,i dont think it is the rad mounts as the noise is coming from the steering rack/rear of engine bay area,i just cannot pinpoint it which is annoying
