    As above, when going slowish over uneven road it I get a light tapping/knocking noise, best way to describe it is as if a bolt going through a bush isn't a tight fit so it has movement and causes rattling! But it's not this!

    Any help and ideas please?

    If you have the wind deflector trims fitted to the rear suspension then check that these are secure. The noise that they make you would swear something serious was wrong
