Why does my car make a knocking noise when I turn left?


Are you SURE it's from the back end? This is the sort of thing you get with a worn CV joint. Make sure everything is secure in the boot.
Could also be a worn wheel bearing on the rear, probably nearside wheel. Check for play in the wheels.

Check suspension pivot points and bushes for excessive wear. Check shocky mount rubbers for condition and tightness.

I would have your cv axles inspected. When these are going out it will make a clunking/knocking sound as well.

SUSPENSION KNOCK AT REAR BMW E46 COMPACT WHEN DRIVING AT LOW SPEEDS OR GOING OVER BUMPS THERES A LOT OF KNOCKING CAN NOT HERE IT WHEN GOING A NORMAL DRIVING SPEED THO ANY SUGGESTIONS


There are a couple of things that can cause it. The first and easiest to diagnose, is the strut. BMWs sometimes get "creaky" struts...diagnose this my pushing down on the car on each corner, and when it moves, see if it makes any noise. If this doesn't yield anything, then the next step is to look under the car at the rubber or plastic bushings at the pivot points of the suspension. while you're under there, look at the ball joint boots as well and see if any are torn. If so, they will need replaced. If you still haven't found anything, place a jack on the suspension arm at each wheel, one at a time. if the tires slides out a little when it just starts clearing the ground, you likely have worn ball joints.

I have a Peugeot 406 HDI on a ''Y''plate,everytime I go over a speed ramp or fall foul to a pothole on the road there is a knocking sound coming from the suspension area at the rear.


define which side the knock is coming from and replace that suspension arm would reccommend taking it to a gargae to be fitted as it may jus be the spring in which case you would need some spring compressors

Knocking noise from rear of car


There are two common known problems with the rear suspension. One problem is the rear spring colliding with the rear lower arm during rebound. This is caused by a lack of support in the rear lower arm and the upper spring seat. The solution is to fit a spring isolator sleeve to prevent the metal to metal knocking. Another common problem is knocking of the top coils of the springs. A revised rear lower arm spring seat has been fitted since 02/2002.

Knocking on steering / braking


Sway bar links are also part of the suspension that you really can't feel while driving. If you're handy enough take your front wheel off and you'll see a bar passing through to each side of your front suspension. It is connected to the lower control arm by sway bar links. The links have ball joints enclosed by rubber boots with grease. Eventually this grease will come out or the boots will tear and you'll hear metal on metal while force is applied. These are fairly cheap to buy yet you may have some trouble getting them off without air tools. If you try to do it your self i'd suggest spraying the bolts down with some lubrication.
