Hi everyone could any body help Please.
I am getting a loud bang from the rear of the car every time I hit a bump.
I took the car to kwick fit and they said the buhes and shocks, suspension are ok.
The noise comes from both sides.
Did they check the exhaust and did they check it on the ramp - when on a ramp the clearance between underside and exhaust could be somewhat different -try moving thr vehicle forward or back from stationary with the handbrake on a see if you can hear anything - one other possibility is a broken rear spring - Lagunas have a habit of breaking on end off - and it would be hard to notice but it makes a noise when going over bumps - try driving over traffic ramps at various speeds and see what happens - although its not like Quik-fit to miss an opportunity for a quick buck. Hoep this helps - let us know if you discover what it is. Good luck and good hunting. P.S. - before driving over ramps it a good idea yo empty the boot - carpet and all as the noise will be easier to hear or maybe the gold bullion rolling about LOL
I know i am a bit of a traitor here, but someone has just posted photos on how to change them in the parkers forum (am i alllowed to say that?) . Using the special tool in situ .
Very good and precise instructions.
Had same problem with mine it was the rear coil spring snaped at the bottom,had to get my head right inside and look at mount ,got a couple from a brakers yard £70 the pair (after the heart attack of the renault price) still got a pain when i broke my finger fitting it (dont ask the wife to help, her fult to light to force the arm down :d )
I have the same knocking noise. the car is at 66000miles (if that makes a difference). i also here it when i brake. at first i thought it might of been the fuel tank a little loose but i got it on a ramp and had a look at everything and could not see anything moving about when shaken. is anybody else having a problem like this?
