Ford Mondeo III - Mondeo 2003 front wheel knocking/rattle sound - jonboy2020

hi, i have a 2003 mondeo mk3 estate (100k miles) and there is a really annoying knocking/rattle sound coming from the front drivers side wheel. it seems to be worse in the cold but is always there, more so on uneven road surfaces.

i initially thought it was the wishbone bush but have been advised that this is unlikely as there is no handling difference and all tyres are wearing normally.

with a little research, i have come up with the possibility that it could be the anti roll bar drop link??

can anyone please confirm this or help me out with this. i also need to know, if it is the drop link then how tricky is it to change yourself?

Many thanks!

anti roll bar drop links are notorious on other cars for causing a rattle as they have no permamnent load on them so on rough surfaces they can clatter continiously. i have changed several on citroens and they are very easy, one nut on each end, not had any experience with Ford ones though.
