Drop links ???
my 159 2.4 Ti yesterday made a kinda "thump" noise from the rear when breaking and moving along in traffic. Pulled up last night and gave the rear of the car (N/S) a gentle nudge up and down........"Squeak" then "knock" then "Rattle" ???
Almost sounded like a loose exhaust hanger??? but couldn't see anything.............I'm thinking it's the drop link ??
Also the car has developed a drone which is noticeable a low speeds from the front. No clear signs of tyre wear???......Wheel Bearing ??
Anyway as I'm in Swinedon I'm gonna give Optima a try in "Royal" Wootton Bassett.....Anyone got any experience of them or think that my above amateur diagnosis is Plausible ??
