Hi

I have a Peugeot 307 1.4 HDI (2003) and all of a sudden I am getting a knocking sound which seems to be coming from the front end of the car.

The knocking sound is not constant and I can hear it when I accellerate, not just from standstill. For example, I am moving in a straight line on 3rd gear, I release the accellerator, re-press it gently and cluckk! I have also noticed that when I stop on a hill and accellerate on 1st gear the sound is louder.

One other thing I noted was that this morning I stalled the car in traffic. While stalling the knocking sound was much louder.

Any help please? Could this be related to an engine or gearbox mount please?

Thanks.

I think you have answered your own question.

From the symptoms you are having with your car it does sound like your engine or gearbox mount is worn.
