TT noise noise noise

on Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:38 pm
Knocking / clattering at low speed in the TT

I've had a look under as best I can with the engine running this morning but can't see anything lose or shaking... Its most noticeable in a multi story going up and down the ramps, less occasionally in traffic but really beginning to get on my tits

I assumed it was exhaust or heat shield but I can't see any movement

Any ideas what else might be making a similar noise?

It definitely sounds like the bonnet area rather than underneath but nothing noticeable when stationary

Need to check the suspension springs, two got replaced a while back - one was heavily corroded so got done whilst something else was being sorted

Drop links eh not thought of looking at those, I'll have a look

Crisps very little change in my pockets

Hows the steering? Any play? The racks in these are known to wear and rattle. The front shock absorbers also wear (top bushes) which will rattle.

Best I can do mate....

Still at a loss although there is now a rattle at idle under light revs which I think is the heat shield behind the engine in front of the radio / air con etc... I can't get to it yet, will have to try again Friday

Quick trip to ATS might be the easiest option

You have to accept it's carried some weight and may have saggy suspension
