    I have recently acquired a Sports Coupe C class from 2002 and the Front drivers wheel is knocking when going over a bump in the road. I'm going to guess this could be a common problem at a car with over 100k on it.

    Does anyone know if this is often just a bush that needs replacing and also if it is ok to do a long journey in its current state over Christmas?

    Many thanks

    First thing that I would check is the roll bar drop link and the rubber bushes on the roll bar
