Hi all. New member to the forum. Need help.

 

I have a Ford Escort van 2002.

When i hit a bump no matter how small, I get a clunk at the rear end.

Sounds like metal to metal.

I have checked all the obvious, exhaust shocks, etc.

 

The punch line is....it only happens when it rains or the ground is wet.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks.

sounds like it could be water ingress into the CV joint. Check the joint itself carefully and check the boots around it in case one is leaking.

Its unlikely to be the CV joints as they are at the front (could they sound like the noise is coming from the back?)

 

is it a dead rear axle with leaf springs on that model? (leafs rubbing together? ) or rain/ water coming off the wheels/ hitting the arches etc

 

Since its only when its wet on the ground, - perpaps its your umbrella rattling about in the back :lol:

Thanks FOKA

Could be anything. I do suspect the leaf springs bouncing, but I cant figure why only in the wet.

It's to loud for water splash. Sounds like the exhaust banging the axle, but I checked that.

I keep the brolly up front.
