    Hi guys,

    So my FN2 has developed what started out as a clunk/pop sound when driving over uneven ground. Through lots of reaseach I was certain it sounded like a drop-link issue and took it to a garage that recently replaced the top mount. They looked over it and couldn't identify anything causing the sound - this was about 2 weeks ago, since then things have got much worse...

    This clunk noise now happens when performing a turn, parking, steering at low speed and when driving over uneven ground. I also discovered tonight that if I pull the steering wheel from left to right quickly I can generate the noise, it sounds as you would expect if the wheel wasnt correctly attached to the hub that kind of knocking (and no it's not that I have checked).

    Has anyone has this experience and resolved it at all or know if anyone that has? This is driving me nuts!

    Try lubricating all the bushes with a silicone spray .. if the noise stops then you need to troubleshoot which rubber bush is the culprit.
