    alright guys,

    was driving along a very uneven road last night and heard this weird sound coming for underneath the drivers side area. it was like two plates hitting eachother.

    i don't hear it when i go over speed bumps but i hear it alot driving on even surfaces. getting a bit worried so can anyone shed some light on what it could be.

    thanks.

    do you reckon it's just loose? i'm hoping it's nothing too expensive.

    probably best to take it to a friendly quik fit and put it on a ramp to have a look underneath - they will should do this for free

    Ive noticed a similar noise coming from the underside of my car, seems to be coming from the rear of the car though. Think i need to get underneath and take a look. :keule:

    let me know whats wrong with yours when you have a look underneath.

    i jacked up the car and had a look, the catshield wasn't loose and the exhaust seemed fine but i think the cat shield is a bit too close and thats what is hitting. :confused:
