Re: Laguna 2 Weird Knocking
Got to the bottom of the knock on my car, how to try and explain this.
Where the bush fits in place, it's not possible to get a spanner above it when the bolt is being tightened, so to get round this there is a tab which fits into the axel, so that when the bush is fit into place and the bolt tighted it does not spin round.
When the bushes were changed this tab was not quite in place but there was suficient resistance to allow the bolt to be nipped up tight, however under braking and normal load it slipped into it correct place, and this dropped gave 1/2 3/4 inch play, so when going over bumps the rear near side wheel was rattling and knocking.
The simple fix was to ensue the tab was in place and the bush tightened.
