No there is no way to service or repair your shock absorbers, tho it's a pretty straight forward job if you can find the parts yourself

I have a 2008 308 1.6 vti sport and it has developed a knocking when on bumpy roads at slow speed I have had a garage look at it but they are unable to find the cause any ideas


When someone reports a knocking from suspension a garage is unlikely to spend much time unless the knocking is either obvious or can be duplicated by bouncing or rocking or it is a very favoured customer.

Typically suspension/steering knocks and rattles do not cooperate and disappear once in the garage and so they must check the vehicle is safe and leave the rattle or knocking to develop. Lots of things can cause noise without being dangerous.

I was a mechanic in a garage in the days before time cost so much money and we took a different view of things. Then if someone brought us a rattle we mostly found it and cured it but sometimes the entire staff was employed driving around, bouncing, shaking , listening and sometimes it took hours. In those days the customer never paid for diagnosis - only the repair. That could not happen today...

On the right sort of road surface at the right sort of speed apparently good ball joints, steering racks and suchlike can produce awful noises. These sort of things often need to be checked and rechecked over a period before the source becomes obvious because road conditions cannot be duplicated in a workshop on a stationary car and no checking can be done on a moving car. It can take patience...

One typical knocking that is very difficult to locate is noisy valves inside the shock absorbers. Historically some car brands suffered a lot and others were no trouble at all so it is unsurprising some mechanics have never even heard the sort of racket they can produce that is obvious to no one except the occupants of the car.

I need to know where the thermostat is located for the Audi A8 V8 4.2 Quattro Automatic 2006


The thermostat is located in front of the engine, between V cylinder banks, for Audi A8 V8 4.2 Quattro Automatic. See pictures below:

Remove the thermostat housing (2 bolts) and the old thermostat. Note the orientation of the old thermostat (vent valve facing UP). Clean both thermostat housing and block surfaces and remove all traces of old gasket material. Install the new thermostat vent valve facing UP.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

My vitz 1999 model runs fine on a smooth road but when driving on a bumpy road the car is so unstable goes up and down so much as if wanting to overturn


bounce a corner of the car to see if you have more than a bounce and a rebound,if more, then fit new shockers,always in pairs,front and rear.

Impala rear suspension problem


Could one shock be bad? Causing a difference in bounce return rate? I would crawl under suspended car and check all suspension bolts. Are your bushings in good shape? If one is chewed up or missing then this would cause that misalignement. What kind of suspension do you have? Solid axle or independent susp? I don't know if your car is front or rear wheel drive. I'm guessing front wheel drive.
