    Strange noise (sounds like wind chime of bottles)

    Chaps

    Ive joined a new gym.
    On the way to my new gym are these little speed bumps. They are buggers so I have to go quite slow over them.

    Anyway.. I notice when I do go over a bump I hear 'what sounds like' hanging glass bottles from the passenger side clinking together?? I dont hear this noise on the straight.

    I assume it has something to do with the suspension perhaps?

    Any ideas?

    check spring I guess.

    on my old 58 plate TDI I had this "cow bell" clang noise. Audi had it twice for it. they never found it. only really happened if I was slowing down or pulling away very slowly.

    it sounded like if you got a wooden mallet and smacked the metal
    shied behind the brake discs. But they were all dandy?

    Still gets me to this day. WTF was it!!!

    Are you sure it's not the stone shields on the rear suspension arms? Common fault, the clips that hold them work loose & they then start to rattle/clang when going over bumps, you can replace them with updated plastic ones which I think need to be drilled into the arm to screw/bolt them, or whip them off coat with silicon sealer & refit, or just remove them!
