Re: Loud clunkin, noise coming from left rear

well guys...i took it the dealers today (seftonstreet, liverpool) an they took it out for a spin an they couldnt hear nothin..so they ask me to go out with a guy an still they couldnt hear the noise,,,then another guy came out with me an he said he could hear somethin but not sure what it was...so they check everythin underneath, the drop links where fine, the shocks where fine an exhaust was fine...the car is solid!!

First of all they thought it was the boot latch but they seen i had already dealt with that by leccy tape an vaseline ..they sed there is definatly nothin wrong with the car, they sed that if it is still doin it they would have to take the roll bar off or somethin an grease it...but then it might not even be that...so i got me keys an drove away.

its still doin it ,,an right now i just cant be arsed anymore..my car is a hypocondriac(cant spell the effin word)..even the garage i took it to before the dealers couldnt find nowt wrong.
its puzzlin an it'll have to stay like that!

Crap dealer IMO, take it somewhere else & ask for the DET to come out with you, take him somewhere you know the blo*dy thing rattles.

Re: Loud clunkin, noise coming from left rear

clair try taking the plastic boot liner off (on the boot lid)

(one screw in grab handle) then many plastic snap fit pegs stick your finger in a corner and give it a good yank (just take care near the boot lock mechanism)

take the car for a spin without it


(tape the cables to teh body work too)

(just a suggestion but im sure thats where mine is rattling from)

Re: Loud clunkin, noise coming from left rear

Hey i've just had a thought!

Anyone remember that old VW add? I think it was for the golf!

Check your earrings lol

Tray another dealers, i've been to quite a few and found Forward autos in St Helens to be the best.

Don't give up, you'll find the problem eventually
