    I have just noticed over the last few days I have a clonking sound coming from the O/S Rear area when going over small bumps the sound is metallic

    Been under can not see anything straight away spring and exhaust look OK

    " Nothing hanging off "

    Also checked spare wheel and tools

    Car has just had MOT also a Free check at Audi Dealers 2 month since

    Car is 2006 TDI Sportback 40000 miles

    Any Ideas before I have to Take it to Dealers[​IMG]

    The droplinks can clunk going over bumps even though there is not enough play in them to fail an MOT.
