Car has been iat the main dealer for two days and they think it’s the anti roll ball so have ordered parts, drop links were previously changed for the same issue. Had the recall done at the same time it passed part 1 and they don’t know when the parts will be available for part 2.

Let us know if the anti roll bar bits cure it. I have the same rattle at low speeds on poor surfaces but hear nothing at all other times.

The rattle is a metallic sounding squeak which can only be heard with the windows open. It happens when going over bumps. It seems to come from both sides but its hard to be certain if it’s coming from the front or back. Could be both. It’ is getting louder and more frequent. A mechanic came out with me in the car a heard it clearly thankfully. I’m not convinced they have pinpointed the issue and are just changing parts in the hope of a cure.
