I'll have a look for you on Thurday, just make yourself known to me.

Its VERY hard to diagnose anything without a good description or visually checking it.

How long has it happend for?
Haseanything changed on the car recently?

Its one of 2 things, puntos are prone for the rear radius arm bushes wearing excessivly, this is the arm that holds your rear suspension/wheel to the chassis or you have snapped a shock absorber smack

does the exhuast go over the axle? as they do on corsas and its a common problem that sometimes they bang on the top of the axle

yep, cos i aint takin it the garage lol

me mate had a look today and said he thinks the suspensions came loose or something and its hitting the wheelarch think

Re: loud noise coming from back of car - 13th Jul 2006 2:32pm

prolly just a bush,if its a tinny rattle it may be the exhaust tapping the axle/heatsheild

If its more of a clunk it may be the bush,and uve said ur mate looked at it and thought the strut was hitting the arch? did he fix it?

snapped damper,possible but hope it isnt

and there may be more things

are ur rear tyres wearing uneavenly,is handling unpredictable?

if answers to those are yes,go to a garage,if not,then do what u want,but it may fail an MOT

some times when the baffels get hot they they rattle, is the pop like a backfire? put your hand over the tailpipe and try to hear for leaks.

Re: loud noise coming from back of car - 15th Jul 2006 7:01pm

its like a backfire yeah.

i had a look under the car, and when it does it the whole exhaust pipe shakes think

Re: loud noise coming from back of car - 15th Jul 2006 9:31pm

is there any black soot on the exhaust near the joints? if so that is where the leak is? have you had any high revving latley as this would make the baffels become loose
Posted By: newnes

Re: loud noise coming from back of car - 17th Jul 2006 6:45pm

could be the revving then think

i dont do it often (honest tease )

i'll have a look for the soot 2nite.

thanks smile
