Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have got a mk2 fiat Punto 51 plate. When I have passengers in the back or some weight in the back I keep getting a banging or clamming noise. I have checked the exhaust to see if it was rubbing on rear axle and hand break cable but both are fine. I have had new shock absorbers to see if that was the problem but problem still there. I've been told it could be the bushes on the back but then I've been told there isn't any bushes on the back. Can anyone help please

SOURCE: passenger side wiper stopes working linkage arm

I had this problem about 18 months ago. I took it to a garage and was advised that the entire wiper motor and linkage arms needed to be replaced quoting approx. £175.00. Instead I took it home, took it all apart and found a washer that was slightly too small to fit on the end of the ball, hit it hard with a hammer thus jamming it on. It hasn't come off once since. Total cost approx. £0.30 and 30 minutes of my own time...

Solution for cars Exhaust hitting road bumps


It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.
