    Hi Guys,

    I was going around a roundabout, only doing under 10mph as there was traffic in front of me. I went over a pot hole and i heard this loud clunk noise coming from the front driver side. At first I thought i popped the tyre so I pulled over to check and nothing was wrong. However when i drove off and come to some road bumps, i could hear a rattling noise coming front the front driver side. It sounds like a piece of metal is rattling around. It's had no affect on the steering or performance.

    Any ideas? I'm thinking it could be a snapped spring maybe? The car is booked in for Thursday for a check up...

    Thanks

    I would say a coil spring or the anti roll bar drop link.
    Both should be easy to spot

    anti roll bar drop link. two bolts to change. if I was you I would change both sides they are not that expensive. turn the steering all the way to the right it should be obvious to see.

    Thanks guys. Strange thing is that I had the drop links changed last year, both of them. Maybe they've gone again. The car is still in the garage, hopefully it should be ready tomorrow. Will post the problem.
