I have a knocking sound coming from the front end - feels like it’s offside front corner but can’t be entirely sure. It can be felt through the steering wheel too.


Now here’s the strange bit - it only happens or can be felt when the car is fully warmed up and had been on a decent run - no symptoms whatsoever when cold. Makes it a pig to diagnose in a workshop as car is invariably cold (and symptomless) when they get round to checking it

I’ve uploaded a short video recorded at the end of a drive back to London from Reading last weekend and it’s clearly audible. Anyone ever had a similar problem on a 210?
