Front end knocking


Recommended Posts

I have a M7 1.4TDI which has developed a knocking when turning right over any uneven road surface. Occasionally does it on the straight too.

As I drive over bumps in the while turning I hear a few metal on metal sounding knocks sounding from off side front.

Any ideas what I should be looking for or checking first?

Thanks Mike

Hi there first thing to check would be droplinks/anti rollbar links on the front as that's what happens when they wear down.

I would have put good money on this being on off side of car, as I was definitely sure that's where the nocking was coming from.

Turned out to be the nearside ball joint !
