#302568 Mk6 Suspension Noises

Well I have had a development with my mystery knocking, last friday I gained yet another fault, the plastic hose from the power steering resovoir came unclipped and rubbed against the power steering pump pully, a presto no oil, no power steering. My local dealer got me a new pipe (£43:00), the only way to get any decent access to the area was to remove the o/s headlamp, easy enough and then easy to change the pipe, it was however that when I was cleaning up the spilt oil from around the engine bay that I noticed that the front bumper bar to chassis fixing was loose (very loose), on closer examination all 8 retaining bolts were found to be very loose and the noise that as been driving me nuts was in fact the front bumper bar moving and banging, this could not be seen from underneath or from outside as the outer bumper skin didn't move with the bar. \\\\\\\\but on driving the car it was an instant fix and no more noise.

Very pleased
