    W205 Clonking for first 10 minutes of journeys

    Hi, My 15 month old W205 has developed a clonking/knocking noise from the nearside rear of the car. It only occurs for the first 10-15 minutes of a journey and then disappears completely until the car has cooled down. I had a local garage inspect the rear suspension, suspecting it was a...

    C230K Clonking (front?) suspension over bumps

    As title really. Over bumps etc, right as rain on normal roads. Pretty certain its from the front left, but not 100%. Even with it jacked up I cant see anything obvious, but is there something common on these that causes that? Thanks

    Clonking noise

    Last night our car started to make a clonking sound from the front drivers side wheel. It seems to happen at ~3/4 lock and also when going over speed bumps? Any ideas on what it is would be appreciated, mildly annoyed since had the car serviced 3wks back. D.

    Weird clonking noise

    I have this brief clonking noise sometimes (not every time) which usually happens if I am pulling away at lights after having my foot on the break for a while. It seems to be just one clonk, and it comes from the passenger rear side I believe. Any ideas what might be causing it?

    C180 suspension 'clonking' noise on rough ground

    Hi, I recently bought a 2001 C180 and noticed a 'clonking' noise from the right front suspension. It is noticeable when the right front wheel drops into a hole in the road or on rough ground. Seems worse if braking at the same time. The car is under warranty, so brought it to the garage and...

    Knocking / clonking noise from front wheels

    I get a slight knocking / clonking noise from the front wheels when I go over small potholes or bumps and a very little vibration back through the steering wheel. I had the balljoints replaced about 10,000 miles ago, so do not expect them to be the problem. It feels as if the whole of the...

    Hi. I still have the clonking noise on my W202 when traversing rough roads. However, as an update, I have noticed that if I have a passenger, the noise is hardly noticable. What could this indicate? - If the fault is the balljoint (which I am getting convinced that it is), would that be affected...
