|99 2.0 HDi: knocking & creaking from suspension - martinu|
My Pug 306 HDi makes a strange random knocking "pock-pock-[pause]-pock" from the suspension. It sounds like worn shock absorbers but I've had those checked several times, by Kwik Fit, by a Pug dealer and by an independent garage, and they say that they cannot find a fault. Also, when the car is first driven (for the first mile or so) there is a loud creaking (it sounds like a donkey braying!) from the suspension whenever it goes onto or comes off speed humps, as the suspension is being compressed and released by more than the normal amount. My garage was unable to reproduce that symptom to investigate it.
The knocking happens at any speed and happens when the wheels are pointing straight ahead or when I'm turning - steering does not affect it.
Can anyone suggest what could be making the noise. Is it serious or should I take the word of the various garages that have checked it.
The car is just under 10 years old and has done 152,000 miles. It has been serviced at the manufacturer's interval of 12,000 miles and had any fixes that have been recommended.
