Re: Banging and knocking - Laguna!

Hello, I take it you mean bodywork type banging as opposed to engine misfires through the exhaust.
You seem to have covered all the obvious components likely to bang against the chassis, but is the exhaust system securely mounted and the correct fit? Are your brakes working ok - have you a caliper or brake pad loose banging on the disc? does the banging come on after 2 months when you might have gone over an extra-large bump in the road? Are the engine/gearbox mounts secure?
Seems your not getting very good service from your garages

One final thought .. is anyone maliciously tying say a drinks can underneath your car which would bang about as you drive until it falls off?
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
