    Sounds like an engine mount is shot. Your best bet is to take the lower engine cover off and locate all the mounts.........watch them by lying on the floor while your wife revs the engine to pin point and make sure its a mount, which I think it is.

    You and this bloody knocking! You got arond ten threads on this knocking lol. I can understand the frustration.

    Open the bonnet and give the engine a good shake, literally grab it and shake it!

    The only way you can propoerly tell is get a pry-bar and lever the engine at each of the mounting points - whichever mount give the most movement is the culprit.

    Just general visual checks or rocking the engine wont really tell you anything!

    One of best ways with handbrake on and another person taking up the drive to biting point will rock the engine to the max so you'll see and hear any excessive movement.
