Re: Laguna 2 Weird Knocking

Keeping the post alive as if and when this noise gets fixed it may help others.

Anyhoo, car was back at the garage today, it was not looked at but a friend of the mechanic looking at the problem suggested a possible solution.

Don't shoot the messenger here, but the mech was told that on the Laguna rear axle there are to locating dowels, these are just push fit parts and when the axle is lowered they can fall out. Then when the axle is refit, if the missng dowel has gone unoticed, even though the axle can be screwed up tight back into place, the effect of the missing dowel is to allow the axle to shuffle slightly, which in turn could create noise.

I'll post up again if indeed this was the problem, or not as the case maybe.
Currently in Khamelion's garage:
2002 Renault Laguna II 1.9dCi Dynamique
