    Default DS 21 front end rattles

    Greetings
    Eliminating all the rattles from the D front end is proving to be quite a challenge.So far I have dealt with all the ball joints,tie rods and steering relays -fixing as required.Adjustment of all the anti roll bar links produced further improvment.But some nasty rattles remain.The only things I havn,t checked are the Roll bar bushes.All comments welcome.

    yeah check the rollbar bearings. When I was 16 I pulled the engine and gearbox from my fathers DSpecial so the suspension tubes could be welded. I can't remember why, but I pulled the rollbar bearings off. It knocked after re-assembly. I obviously didn't assemble the bearings correctly.

    Brian,

    If the 'rattle' seems to be coming from the glove box area and/or the steering column area on RHD cars check carefully the right hand side engine mount. It is the one that typically collapses first and the bottom metal plate can then come in contact with the support bracket on the bulkhead over minor undulations. Additionally check the mounting of the air cleaner (there are rubber isolation bushings that collapse over time) as well as the securing bolts/nuts holding the exhaust manifold heat shields.
