    Default 405 front end noise

    Today I drove over a very corigated dirt road to get to a surfing spot. Mt car has developed a very loud knocking sound which was very much more evident on this road.It sounds like the knocking sound when a shockie rubber has gone when I got home I checked to see if there was evident loose bits withuot luck so before I take it to a mechanic which I would prefere not to any ideas from you knowing Peugeot people. Cheers LuLu

    I believe this is just standard worn 405 strut noise. Of course something else could be wrong as well.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    take it to a suspension place and get them to give it a check over

    they normally only charge around $15-30

    and they check everything very well and give you a report

    much better than one of us trying to diagnose it when there are so many things under there that can cause the noise
    3 x '78 604 SL

    1 x 2018 3008

    1 x 2000 Citroen XM,

    1 x '98 306 GTi6 sadly sold

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel
