Car is going in for an MOT tomorrow and N/S CV boot so I'm not too concerned, but I do have to go to Uni today which is about 50 miles all in.

From the front drivers side wheel/suspension mount there is a metallic rattling noise HOWEVER I can only hear it when going over pot holes, ruts or generally bumpy roads - on a 'smooth' motorway it is absolutely fine.

It has just started all of a sudden although the car has been getting some B road stick lately. Is this likely to be something that has snapped or just loose?! Never had such problems before

So yeah, what could it be?!

Extra 1300

I was 19/20 at the time though. 21 now with 1NCB so it may be ok - but adding skirts was the same at the time - they only seem to allow 1 mod i.e. alloys.

Good to know that is cheap Warren
