weird rattle from front of car

Im new to the forum's and i have finally got my mk2 punto sporting
ive only had 2 problems really the 2 boots struts fail n dont keep the boot lid open as my dad found out, but the garage has orded new ones to replace for free so jobs a good one. but now to the main problem the car runs fine and has no problems just once i hit a bumpy round or a slight bump i hear a rattle, as if something metal is loose, ive had the car up and looked around n checked the basics seems thats all i really know n had it at the garage and they "checked" which must of consisted of driving around tesco car park and that was it, does anyone ave any thoughts to what it could be?

Re: weird rattle from front of car

Had a similar problem myself a few weeks ago shortly after buying my Mk 1 diesel. Had it up on ramps and shook everything around, couldn't find anything so obviously loose enough to be causing the rattle. Finally, in desperation, I took it up to my local tyre and exhaust place. They found the front brake pads to be rattling around within the calipers, partly down to the excessive wear, and also, I think the spring clips that assist keeping them in position, had fallen out/broken. New pads and discs later, nice and quiet at the front end again - well apart from that noisy diesel engine!

Re: weird rattle from front of car

sorry i aint been on a while, i have had problems with electrics due to a dodge dealer, so after i got it fixed i took the car to my brother and he found out on the protector sorry to not give accurate part, near the breaks was nocking when i went over a bump, i only observed my brother all i know is he bent it back into place well a quick job, which hasnt done much, so he is going to do the proper job soonish.
