Hi all, I have a 2001 focus 1.6 petrol. when i am in traffic and i am not applying the accelarator there is a loud knocking noise from the front end. My opinion was it was a CV Joint/Drive Shaft but it doesnt make any noises when turning corners or when i am on the accelarator. it only happens when i am rolling eiva in gear or in neutral and when i accelarate it stops. and also stops if i apply the brake. this noise has got worse. so i need to get it sorted. it is a constent knocking noise as if something is going round. any suggestions, opinions, anyone suffered from this before. anything would be a grate help. thanks

it could be a cv/driveshaft, or a wheel bearing try and isolate which side it is coming from and check for wear
