Front Suspension Knocking
My 1.9JTDM 159 has got 55k on the clock. As we are know, she drives like a dream.
But, i get a peculiar dull thudding knocking noise coming from the passanger front suspension.
It doesnt make a big "clonking" noise when going over big bumps or drain covers, it is only when i drive over slightly rought roads, like cobblestones. The suspension sounds like a machine gun!!!!
It sounds to me like the rose link (very common on Mondeo's, which i used to have)
I took the car back to the garage and they swear blind they can not find anything wrong with the suspension components or geometery
The other thing is, when I drive the car on my own the noise is worse and irratates the hell out of me.
But when i have someone in the front passenger seat the noise seems to dissappear, in other words when the shocks are loaded
