Heard metallic clink on sharp corner
« on: 08 July 2018, 23:09:16 »

Hi Guys

2.6 02 saloon

Was cornering right hand bend the other day, it's a short sharp one, more of a sort of L bend for a mway on ramp, and took it a bit "keen" and then heard what I can only describe as a metallic clink sound, the noise was more "outside" rather than hearing it through the cabin; I had window down so heard it clearly outside. Haven't inspected anything as of yet and don't see anything visual like sagging from broken spring or anything, nor is handling any different or any other noises apparent, so going to have a look. Anyone had a similar experience and found what it was, or suggestions what to check etc.

Big vote for broken spring. If there is something broken and any kind of maintenance hasn't been done in a while (If some maintenance something loose?).

Earlier drive was silver - 1995 - MV6 - Manual

Could simply have been a stone pinging off the Armco as you turned the corner...

Don't worry about it until it happens again somewhere else ;)
