  1. just a single clunk..but rather loud.. only seems to happen when you accellerate or cna easily make it happen by pumping the accelerator pedal...
  2. its weird isnt it?? nope, no knocks at all when in neutral.. it only seems to do it when in gear and when accelerating/deaccelerating - as though there is play in the gearbox or driveshaft..
  3. ah, had a feeling you might say that.. to be honest, it does it in all gears, just depends if you can hear it due to wind/road noise.. i havent noticed any knocking at all when cornering like you would with a CV joint gone, although i did notice a slight vibration through the steering wheel when pulling off a few times today,nothing too bad, just the few knocks..
  4. hi thanks for the reply. well, if its the driveshaft, i guess its something i can do as its not necessarily complicated, but didnt want to go down the road of changing the part to find its made no difference and its gearbox related..
  5. Hi guys, im having a problem with my mondeo 2.0 tdci. i seem to have a knock coming from around the n/s of the car whenever i accelerate and deaccelerate, but its not a very harsh knock as it doesnt vibrate the car or go through the steering, its just more of a noise than anything... i have managed to drive the car with very smooth accelerating and gear changing to avoid the problem, but you can always make it happen if you quickly press the accelerater or quickly lift your foot off the pedal. i jacked the car up today and took the wheel off and i can make it happen by rotating the wheel hub clockwise and counter clockwise - back and forth.. the sound seems to be coming from the inner side of the drive shaft or the gearbox? ive read a few forums who suggest it may be the inner driveshaft bearing (UV i think?) or the diffrencial has gone and i'll need it rebuilt or a new box put in... any advise on what this is? and if its going to get worse? many thanks :)
