cost about 85 incl labour to change unless you can do it yourself...

not sure on rattling, possible worn CV joint...??
do you also get it when cornering ??

thanks for the reply fella - my mechanic mate thought it was the sensor first but ruled it out - what ever he did in the end got it goin (he said it was a stuck thermostat)- its just not right somehow - the knocking is not the driveshaft it happens mostly when its goin in a straight line and you put your foot down or you go up a hill - the noise is a sort of a rattley/knocking - my gut feeling is its the alternator but as you can only get it to make the noise when its goin faster than 30 i cant narrow it down
