Hmmm Mystery knock on 147

I've had a mystery knocking noise on my 2007 147 and it's progressively getting worse. It occurs everytime I pull away, especially when I'm moving on the biting point and on full lock. It's also occurring when I brake and then accelerate up again. It's sounds like its coming from the front passenger side.

The cars under warranty and had the front suspension done a few months ago, drop links, anti roll bars etc. The Alfa dealership have had it for the last two days and yet to find the problem but agree there is a definite knock. Completely annoyed by the knock and the situation Ive taken it back and going to get a second opinion. Anyone had a similar issue, or could point me in the right direction?

I had a similar issue on the GTA, it was the lower engine mount. Probably not, but worth investigating.

Thanks for the reply Captain Slow. Finally got it checked by my Dads mate and he reckons its the top strut mount on the passenger side. Now to take it to Alfa and hopefully they agree.
