Hi,

i have a knocking noise coming from the front of my car. It only seems to happen when you accelerate hard in second and third gears.

I've looked under the bonnet and there's nothing obvious there. Had it on ramps and nothing on the exhaust or anything so i'm now starting to wonder if it could be either the clutch or the gearbox.

Has anyone else had this issue and, if so, what was it and how did you solve it?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

I'm quite new to all of this so I wouldn't know where to look for the engine Mountings.

Let me know how you get on with Ford on Tuesday. From experience they will do anything they can to get out of doing work under the warranty!
