Good News, and Bad News... can you help?

Good News:

Got my car back today, drives like a dream, bill wasn't as bad as I'd been told, he surprised me by saying it would cost more than it did in the end, meaning I have extra cash to blow this week

Bad News:

Got my car back today, drives like a dream, HOWEVER... The is a creaking / knocking noise coming from the left wheel area!?! It only happens under instant acceleration, not steady, any ideas folks? Help

Thanks

Go back to the garage and mention it, if they're half decent there, they'll take a look for no fee atall if it could be something they may have caused. Take the receipts just for proof, they may try and deny it.

Otherwise it might be a loose driveshaft slipping

Unfortunately not, but as mentioned in another post, I've decided on re-enacting the torture scene from Casino Royale when I find them...
