What Could This Be?

7 posts in this topic

My 03 focus has started to make a light clunk/ knock ( sometimes 2 knocks quickly 1 after the other ) when i come off and on the power and sometimes when i turn, although it has a slight delay so i don't think its gearbox related.

It has new control arms on the front recently fitted so cant be that.

Anyone any ideas?

The lower ball joints are new with the recent control arms, but i will check the top ones.

Is there anything much on the rear suspension which can wear?

rear upper bushes are worth checking and all of the rear control arms

I will give these all a look at.

The clutch was done not that long ago, so i will check the gearbox mount especially.

Thanks all.

Only got round to checking the car today, and you were right FOCA. It just needed the gearbox mount bolt tightening up a bit. I wouldn't have thought of that.

Cheers mate.
