Crazed Knocking noise?

Wife has an R registration 146ti - 2 litre 16 valve.

Its a really nice car in every way. Fast and handles well and has the full black leather interior, which sets the whole car off to the other 146ti's out there.

Problem is the car has a loud knocking noise from under front. believe me we have checked nearly every bolt, mount, bush and moving part that is obvious, but can't stop the knocking. It has passed 2 MOT's and nothing was found? we thought it was the anti-roll bush? but it isn't?

Does anyone else have or had this problem and can shed light?

Yeeeeahhhhhh Kevin... To the Rat Mobile....

Re: Knocking noise?


I have had this problem and it drove me mad. I too tried absolutely everything and when I had the cambelt changed it stopped! There was another Forum member on here who had the same problem with a 156 and the camblet change cured his problem too. Tensioner lose if I remember well????

Re: Knocking noise?

I had this problem on my 145 and it was the drop links for the anti roll bar. Their failure was only obvious to the eye once they were taken off of the car.

Re: Knocking noise?

Ball joint on the lower wish bone will create knocking if it is worn. Problem is I couldnt tell mine was worn until I took the hub off for a bearing change.
