Nah, just pull the belt out, fasten and un-fasten it, check it for damage and as long as it coils up again they dont dismantle the post Clair, my money would still be on a drop-link, had me going for a while, I stripped the rear end totally & felt a right noodle when they changed the drop-link under 3rd year warranty and the rattle went never to return yet...

Uneven roads at low speed were shocking until it was fixed...

Clair i seem to vaguely remember you did a car maintenance course

if the cars out of warrenty the drop links only cost about 8 (from my mates experiance with a stilo the other week) from a motor factors...

depending on them they need either an alan key or open ended spanner and socket set and some penetration oil (plus gas/ Bilt hamber ferrisol)

soak for several hours even better over night or a couple of days (just keep giving them a bit once or twice a day)

I had a knocking noise from the rear left, was driving me crazy, took it to the dealers and it turned out to be the brakes, needed a modified part, sorted the problem straight away

Re: Loud clunkin, noise coming from left rear

Take it STRAIGHT to your dealer, don't pass go and DON'T collect 200.

It MAY be the brass bushes on the anti-roll bar. That's what my dealer is replacing, so noise MAY be fixed next week if it is.

Unfortunately, some (and I mean some) noises in cars are VERY tricky to pinpoint due to the metal construction and acoustic nature of a motor vehicle. Sometimes those knocks and ratttles that sound like they are on the left and towards the front, SOMETIMES originate from the rear.

<Strange but true>, and I would have to assume that in your case it is a sound emminating from the back.

PS With the boot being open you'd get more road noise wouldn't you?
Anyway, like I said, it's only just another option/comment that perhaps you could ask your dealer about?!??

NB I have been told that MOT's do not require a road test, so don't assume (like I did) that they must have spotted it themselves!!!

Thats why garages have 4-way microphone kits to pinpoint the noise
