Progressive faster and louder clonk...
Hello everyone, having got the Alfa on the road, i took it down to Milton Keynes this weekend...absolutely fine on the way down..then on the way back, it started off as a gentle rubbing noise and slowly but surely has turned into a repetitive donk donk donk donk donk...
At first i thought it might be undertray, and it does appear a little loose at the back, but it's all firmly done up at the front... (which is where it previously popped out off and created a horrendous noise)
It doesn't make the noise on acceleration, it doesn't do it below 20mph..and if you brake it sometimes does it, sometimes doesn't...it does make the noise on coasting.
None of the wheels are hot
It isn't the engine, as it's making the noise based on rotation, not RPM (dumping the clutch doesn't make the noise go away)
Things we've recently replaced
Passenger side upper wishbone
Both rear springs
Cam belt & water pump.
