Re: Renault Espace - Tailgate Adjustment

Just a thought - does the car have a towbar fitted?

If so it is quite common for the exhast to foul on the strut which holds the towbar's cross memeber to the mounting points in the wheel arch. The suspension member there has a rubber bump stop to prevent any knocking, but most towbars protrude past the stop resulting in the clunking noise.

Best addressed with a rubber towbar strap from Halfrauds or similar, cut to size and zip tied onto the inside of the towbar bracket, to replace the action of the normal bump stop.
