Anyone know of a good mechanic in this area. We have an ongoing fault with our E320 CDI which is making an intermittent knocking noise when pulling away from rest and sometimes from mild acceleration from 20 to 30 mph. Seems to be more pronounced after turning left or right or going over bumps. Sometimes it does not do it at all, other times it is constant and can be quite noisy. The local garage have checked a few times now and can't find anything.

It could be the rear subframe bushes. Getting very common too. Is it an estate?

Hi everyone. Haven't been on for a while. Yes the car is an estate and we bought it new so we know that it has not had the bushes replaced.
Thanks Richard for that address and phone no. Will get my husband to give them a ring. Let you know how we get on.
We are thinking of selling the car and getting a small 4x4 to tow the caravan with. Anyone wish to buy it? Navy estate 51 plate. Make us a sensible offer!!!
