So the saga of the knocking car...what would you do about it?

Basically the story so far...

18-Mar in, undertray/heat shield tightened..... not fixed
25-Mar took out mechanic, who agreed there was a noise
08-Apr In, droplink (1) changed temp appeared better
09-Apr in, took aftersales manager out, heard noise
29-Apr in, investigation, diagnosed hub carrier
23-May in, Hub carrier changed not fixed
19-Jun in droplinks (2)changed (+ poss bottom arm) temp appeared better
24-Jun in, they couldn't hear anything so didn't change anything

Basically they said if they can't hear anything then they can't change anything. However, a few days on and I think its getting worse again.

So I have a few scenarios...

Wait and see if it comes back constantly so they can hear it, return to dealer
Go for a second opinion at other dear, though its finding time to travel to one
Go to trusted independent for a listen/check, though will cost

Have you called 0844 870 0147 ?
Alfa customer services were helpful when the Alfa dealer made a mistake with the oil change and liaised then followed up with a call to check if it was resolved.

I haven't yet, was talking to the lads in the service dept and asked them about getting Alfa in to diagnose, they said they wont send anyone unless they (dealer) tell Alfa there is an issue...

They weren't being funny or anything and to be fair the customer service has been good, just haven't fixed issue yet!

I guess it still in warranty?
I would give it the last go and, if not resolved, take it to an independent

Yes it's just gone 1 year old.
I will wait and see if it gets as bad as it was (it's certainly doing it again but less frequently). Then I will see what dealer says.
