Question Megane 2 OSF knock over bumps??

Hi All

Our MK2 Megane 1.5dci has a very annoying rattle coming from the OSF. If the NSF wheel hits a pothole nothing but if the OSF wheel does there is a distinct knock or rattle.

I jacked it up and put it on stands and had a hunt around but couldn't find anything so left it for the upcoming MOT test. It failed on a ball joint and I thought thank God for that as that'll be the knock. Alas no, ball joint replaced but the knock is there as before.

I had another look but still couldn't find anything although the strut mountings weren't fully tight and one of the three bolts does seem to be threaded. But retightening the others has n't cured it either. Any ideas on where this annoying rattle could be coming from?

Many thanks
