Default Unknown Noise - 27th March 2014, 01:25 PM

Had a noise/knock for while, that sounds that it is coming from the rear.

After google search revealed that the rear ARB bushes are prone to knocking, changed them - knock is still there

Bearing in mind, mine is a cabrio, so noise levels are higher anyway, sounds like it comes from the rear, but not 100% sure

Basically, while driving along, if I touch the accelerator I get a single 'knock', foot off I get another 'knock'

I can take my foot off and back on again repeatedly and get a single knock each time. Anyone else had similar problem and any idea on the next thing to try?

TIA

I'd be looking at exhaust mounts, and any place where it could hit the body when the engine moves


Hang on a minute lads, I've got a great idea! Errrr.......

Did you ever find out what this was, is alos happening on the Mrs car... my first thoughts as Madmoggy states could be the exhaust hangers come loose.
