Well i changed the droplinks! but made very little difference..

i do feel the knocking getting worse as its from both sides, its worse when the car is cold and i go over speed bumps or something it actually feels like some kind of rubber mount is weak..

has any one had worn wishbone mounts? just out of curiosity.. or gearbox mounts or similar?

I had a clunking from the rear that I thought was due to the bushes getting worn. When it was checked at the garage I turned out to be a failed shock / damper. Once it was replaced it was fine.

The Honda dealer should find out what it is and fix it for you. Phoenix Honda are very good and reasonably priced.

It could be many things that are the source of the knocking. i find the quickest way to get it sorted is to use the dealer. In 50,0000miles I have had a drop link fail and a shock fail.

The roads round here are terrible, all it takes is one pot hole to do the damage

The problem is because my car is needed for work, putting it into a garage is a head ache! And to do it on a sat most garages shut early etc.. I also has a vibration which has been running thru the car at motorway speeds for a good few months. I think the brakes are the problem so they will be changed asap to try sort that.. but this knocking is driving me mental!

i had a knocking when going over speed bumps and under braking and when accelerating took to local honda dealer and was told this was a common fault somthing to do with the subfame.he put it on ramps and dropped the subfame and greased up the two meating areas and job done that was 4 months ago and all quiet.i would take it to honda and let them have a look as leaving it to get worse could do more damage.

Rock the steering right and left right and left - check for a knocking noise and then do the other side left and right, left and right.

If you get a knock then it could be the drive shaft coming from the gear box.

Mine is knocking on the right hand driveshaft as my mate who is a mechanic informed me that the knock is not right as he would have put an advisory on the MOT that it passed and didn't have an advisory!

so that would be the inner CV?

Its funny because a few months ago i posted regarding my shaking steering and someone said the inner CV is a common issues on the CDTI..

the knocking is deffo worse on the passenger side though..

This is what i hate about using my own car for work! i need to take time off to get it sorted.

Got the same problem on the offside front, knocking going over speed humps, potholes etc. It passed an MOT last month with no problems. It`s going for a service next thursday so i`ve asked them to have a look at it.

I`ll let you know what the say and if they can fix it.

Replacing the rack seems excessive. Do you know why the rack was replaced? It might be worth getting Honda to look at the car and then just have it fixed elsewhere.
