drive shaft was changed, still Rattle, went in or recall on brakes, clutch, they investigated more, changed anti roll bar, Rattle(Knock) has gone, at last, very happy
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.

What kind of rattle do you have?
1.6 CDTI 110HP Innovation trim, Intellilux, Navi, Sovereign silver, 17" wheels
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.
