I remember it on saying that my wife told me after doing all this and waiting for the other parts to be pressed she tell me that there is a tin of de icer at her side that is rolling about in her door pocket God i hope its not that

espace knocking sound

I have a mark 3 espace which has done 80,000, has been well looked after up until last year when my ex-wife had it it, anyway, there is now a knocking sound when going over bumps, pot ho;es eyc and extremely annoying. I have tried everything but not mechanically minded. I have even stood up on footwells and bounced car up and down but no noise, only seems to be happening when driving and I would say passenger side but not sure. Originally thought it was the tyre underneath or even rear plastic bits behind rear wheels as they are loose but doesnt seem so. Worried about this as sounds expensive to fix and dont really have the money and my service is due too. Does anyone know what i am to look for, obvious things?
