Smile Constant knocking at the rear, solved.

For more than eighteen months now, I've had a constant knocking sound at the rear. I can only describe it as if I had a large pebble in the boot bouncing about. It would do it all the time with the slightest ripple in the road. Last year the car passed the MOT even with this problem, so I thought it couldn't be anything serious. I've just had it MOT'd again, and it failed on anti roll bar linkages near and off side, and lower ball joint near side. This work has now been done and the knocking at the rear has gone Correct me if I'm wrong, but all the repairs have been done on the front of the car. Everyone who ever sat beside me in the car, and heard the noise, swore the sound was coming from the offside rear area. Just thought anyone who has a similar problem might like to have this information.

Could be the rear beam.

New suspension components at the front may be compensating for any rear beam axle issues

I should have said, the knocking was definately worse this year than it was last year. So it seems that the parts they changed weren't worn enough to get spotted last year, but changing them has cured it. Surely anything that worn at the rear would have been spotted.

A tiny bit of wear might cause a knocking noise when driving, but not show up for an mot test. Remember, an mot pass only means a car met certain prescribed minimum requirements on the day of the test. Certainly it doesn't mean everything is in tip top shape. Mot test are conducted on a ramp except for testing the brakes on a rolling road, the tester doesn't necessarily even drive the car onto the ramp.
